The Glitz! the Glamour! Shoulder pads and gold lame! all seen on Krystal, ALexis and Dominique were not limited to the small screen. More is more costume designer Noaln Miller also offered an haute couture Dynasty Collection based on the shoe's fashions.

Dynasty is an American prime time television soap opera that aired on ABC from January 12, 1981 to May 11, 1989. It was created by Richard & Esther Shapiro and produced by Aaron Spelling, and revolved around the Carringtons, a wealthy oil family living in Denver, Colorado. Starring John Forsythe and Linda Evans as oil magnate Blake Carrington and his new wife Krystle, Dynasty was ABC's competitor to CBS's prime time series Dallas.

The show's ratings for the first season were unremarkable, but the second season arrival of Joan Collins as Blake's scheming first wife Alexis heralded Dynasty's rise into the Top 20,[By 1984, it was a top ten show and by 1985, it was the #1 series on television. Dynasty was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best TV Drama Series every year from 1981 to 1986, winning in 1984. Dynasty spawned a successful line of fashion and luxury products, and also a spin-off series called The ColbysDynasty dropped from #7 to #24 during the 1986-87 season, and was ultimately canceled in May 1989 after a nine-season run.
