Miss A Columnist

Dena Miller is the Dallas Editor for Miss A. She has been described by Style Network as a "Queen Bee". Formerly a glam rock scene Diva, Dena is now a Socialite on the Dallas philanthropy scene, specializing in Polo events that benefit women's and children's causes.

While never forgetting her small town roots from a Midwestern farming community in rural Missouri, she’s fit right in the “Big D” since coming here in 1984. After 11 years of promoting the music scene, hobnobbing with the most popular bands from coast to coast, she switched gears after meeting her husband at the first Polo match she ever attended. Always one for excitement, Polo became her new rock n roll.
With her marriage and new found passion for polo, came Philanthropy. Miller founded the Ladies Polo Auxiliary of Texas in 2005 with the goal of promoting the Sport of Kings in north Texas via charity events for causes that are close to her heart. To date the LPA has raised over $500,000 for causes such as domestic violence, children with serious medical needs, therapeutic horsemanship, the Polo Training Foundation, children’s advocacy and food drives for north Texas food Bank. When not working on her own events she is attending Charity luncheons and balls as well as volunteering at golf tournaments and Special Olympics events. She is a member of the USPA Equine Welfare committee and on Board of Dress For Succes Dallas.

Writing has been a lifetime passion of Dena’s. Besides working on a book that proceeds will benefit domestic violence organizations, and writing for two national polo magazines, is a frequent contributor to Dallas area publications, winning Best Contributor Award from Dallas Morning News Neighborsgo, she is co-authoring a book on the phenomenon of cyber bullying by adult women, referred to as Cyber Harrassment.

What started off as an inspiration trip to Paris, turned into a visit to the chateau of French mill Malhia Kent, just outside France’s city of lights. The result: this season’s most coveted couture collaboration. Premier luxury denim brand, 7 For All Mankind, will introduce the Mahlia Kent x 7FAM capsule collection for women in the Fall of 2013, making 7FAM the first denim brand to create a couture 5-pocket.

7 For All Mankind, a division of VF Contemporary Brands, Inc., is the world’s premiere brand of denim-lifestyle products. Founded in 2000, the Los Angeles based premium denim brand quickly earned critical acclaim due to its innovations in fit, fabric and finish. The 7 For All Mankind brand offers denim, sportswear, and accessories collections for men, women and kids. Products are sold in freestanding 7 For All Mankind stores, on-line, and in luxury department and specialty stores in over 80 countries worldwide.

After years of collaborating with Coco Chanel, Eve Corrigan founded Malhia Kent in 1987 and simultaneously created a new standard in luxurious couture fabrics. The mill specializes in the weaving of unlikely pairings of precious fibers. Today, Malhia Kent creates some of the world’s rarest, most delicate and luxurious fabrics, all made in their French mill.

In the fashion world of fantasy, avant-garde and haute couture, nothing is more coveted than the textile creations of Malhia Kent designers. “When two fashion entities from opposite spectrums of the industry come together like this, it can only result in a unique outcome. A perfect harmony,” said Barry Miguel, president of 7 For All Mankind.

Malhia Kent’s iconic and luxurious tweeds, known for their lighter and stronger characteristics, are pieced with 7FAM’s Slim Illusion Second Skin to create four special and exquisite styles for the collection. It includes The Skinny in The Silver Geo Tweed pant, Egyptian Gold Tweed pant, and Blue Metallic Stripe Tweed pant with matching moto jacket. 7FAM’s newest innovation, the Slim Illusion Second Skin, has amazing recovery and stretch that holds one in and slims one down while retaining the comfort of a jegging. This 100 percent elasticity textile is produced from a unique, super stretch denim fabric of the lightest weight construction, offering maximum comfort and stretch while maintaining the integrity and character of denim.

“We fell in love with the Malhia Kent fabrics as soon as we saw them. Their craftsmanship and expertise is second to none,” says Miguel. “Our special collaboration for the FW13 seasons is the sweet spot between denim & innovation.” This synergy between 7FAM and Malhia Kent unites contemporary with high fashion by adding opulence and glamor to the everyday, allowing consumers to indulge in luxury while maintaining their confidence in a brand they trust for all their denim needs. It truly exemplifies the brands vision and efforts to expand into a global premium denim lifestyle brand. The collection will be in select retail stores in September 2013, and will range from $395-$650.
