NOM*d closed out the first day of New Zealand Fashion Week with an art-filled, immersive night to introduce their 75th collection, Au Courant.
The collection features cityscape prints on silk, androgynous shapes with hints of colours found in nature to adorn the core black uniform pieces.
Au Courant was introduced through a fashion film presentation instead of the traditional catwalk. The non-conventional event was held in one of Auckland’s newest venues, Brad’s Warehouse. The two-story heritage building was chosen to pay homage to the birthplace of NOM*d. Hidden from the chaos of downtown Auckland, the building features exposed stonewalls and aged wooden floorboards that echo Dunedin’s architectural buildings.
Founder Margi Roberston took time to reflect on the history of the brand as they returned to New Zealand Fashion Week.
“We started with a cut-and-sew knitwear and now we are creating fully tailored garments and designing our own fabric prints. It’s been such a rewarding evolution of the brand,” said Robertson.
