New Zealand label Starving Artists Fund debuted at New Zealand Fashion Week 2018, and over the next two weeks will present their first collection, 'Future Plans' via a pop-up store in Ponsonby.
The label’s capsule collection SS19 'Camel Light' will also be available for pre-order.
Described by designer Natasha Ovely as an ode to hedonism, the collection draws on sharp-looking degenerates and ‘the loser table at a 70's prom.’
The collection features an exploration of tailoring with light flourishes of anarchy, and new ways to show some skin with a selection of suiting, white t-shirts and jumpsuits that are celebratory in nature.
The pieces range from 120-850 NZD and will be available for purchase online. Limited runs will also be available along with made-to-order options.
