Silver glitter customised Dr Marten-style boots. Jewelry by Idour Sterling silver Mercedes emblem accessory and heavy-set three finger knuckleduster, used in a way which relates to the Nom*D sensibility of international youth culture.

About Nom*D

Dark and wittily sombre, Nom*D has created an iconic image on the New Zealand fashion landscape. The label's designs, which reference traditional tailoring and use reworked vintage garments, are anchored by a utilitarian approach and the concept that clothes must, above all else, be wearable.

In every collection, Nom*D maintains its credibility as a label unaffected by trends and whims, instead adopting the cool, considered gaze of the fashion outsider. Since its inception in 1986, Nom*D has been among a small number of directional fashion labels which have been responsible for defining the style that is now referred to as 'The New Zealand Look'. As one of the ground-breaking New Zealand Four who showed at London Fashion Week in 1999, Nom*D firmly established the dark, intellectual qualities that are now synonymous with New Zealand design.

In part, the label owes its noir-ish aesthetic to Dunedin, a city situated in the remote, rugged surroundings of New Zealand's South Island where Nom*D's designer Margarita and her husband Chris Robertson are still based today. A university town, with an international reputation for its alternative music scene, and a preternaturally Gothic atmosphere, the culture of Dunedin permeates the mood of Robertson's clothes.

Margarita was born of Greek/Ukrainian refugee background. A pre-occupation with fashion has been with Margi since childhood. As a young girl she was a devout op-shopper. That passion for vintage continues in her designs now with reworked vintage pieces frequently included in the range, alongside de-constructed, androgynous suiting and clever knitwear that defies traditional concepts of structure and texture.
