Starving Artists Fund Present 'Future Plans'


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.
