This NOM*d ensemble was included in the exhibition Together Alone: Australian and New Zealand Fashion, (National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, 1 October 2009 – 18 April 2010). The waistcoat exemplifies NOM*d's approach to vintage recycling and reappropriation and bricolage (putting different pieces of garments together to make a new garment).
