Fashion Talks: Margaret Robertson of Nom*D

This past Wednesday evening saw the first event of Fashion Talks 2011 featuring New Zealand designer Margaret Robertson of Nom*d, a cult label born in 1986, known for using dark and somber colours in its design ideas influenced by youth subculture. Hugely inspired by Japanese designers' one-size-fits-all philosophy in dressing, this creative label thrives on challenging the notion of ideal body shapes with captivating distorted silhouettes... and from looking over their collections, I'm simply rocked by their latest winter 2011 compilation 'Danse Macabre' that pushes the art of asymmetry, monochromy, and simplicity to a level beyond compelling.
