Nom D: Don't Shoot - Just Show Me The Moët...

Don't Shoot - Just Show Me The Moët...

Nom D's specially designed Moët & Chandon T-shirts for Fashion Week added a touch of French glamour to the audience at last night's stand-out Nom D show, held offsite at the Auckland Showgrounds.

Special guests at the show received the ultra cool T-shirt - featuring "ransom note" lettering to pick up on Nom D's "Don't Shoot" Winter 2004 collection theme - in the show gift bags. Recipients included British celebrity milliner and "it" girl Cozmo Jenks and Kiwi famous faces such as Peter Urlich, Claire Chiltham, Angela Bloomfield and Petra Bagust.

A number of front-row guests were also invited to wear the T-shirts to the show, including renowned American stylist Brian Long, Pavement editor Bernard McDonald, Dominion Post fashion editor Carolyn Enting and Style Magazine fashion editor Lynette Collins - who customised hers into a sexy singlet.

The black T-shirt, launched at the show and created by Nom D designer Margarita Robertson, features the gold Moët & Chandon crown and the words "Show Me The Moet" in white. The first three words are produced in the mock "ransom note" lettering, giving the T-shirt a unique connection to the "Don't Shoot" theme for Nom D's Winter 2004 collection.

Kathy Sturge, Moët & Chandon brand manager, says the T-shirts were a huge success for Moët & Chandon. "Nom D has done a fantastic job in bringing together the brand values of Moët & Chandon and Nom D, giving our French elegance a distinct Nom D character . So much so, that people were desperate to get their hands on them after the show!."

Moët & Chandon has an intimate relationship with fashion, dating back two-and-a-half centuries ago to Versailles, where elegant women attributed their vivacious spirit to the champagne supplied by Monsieur Moët. Since then, Moët & Chandon has proved the perfect partner for all that is fashionable.

In 1952, Moët & Chandon formalised this partnership with a special event in Cannes to celebrate the House of Worth's spring fashion collection. More recently, Moët & Chandon's involvement in the fashion world has intensified, with glamorous, high profile outings at London Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week and a host of other Northern Hemisphere Fashion Events.

The champagne house further supports international couture shows, for example the extravagantly gorgeous collections from LVMH sister company Christian Dior. The champagne house also runs its own Fashion Awards and hosts celebrated designers at its beautiful base in Epernay, France.

Like all great fashion designers, Moët & Chandon has built its success by blending skill and expertise with artful inspiration. Moët & Chandon gives every occasion an elegant edge.
