This image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 19 August 1969: "This is the Gown of the Year. Modeled by Ngaire Nolan at the Lions Club-sponsored showing of the Benson and Hedges Award for design at the Palmerston North Display Centre last night, this creation is named "Gold Fleece". The jacket is of worsted bullion medallion, all hand crocheted, and then hand sewn, and then lined in lambskin. Underneath is a cullotte style cat suit. Both garments are in cream."
