Seconds of Style #40: Ingrid Starnes - The New Vintage

Ingrid Starnes garments are like old movies living in today, they are Film Noir heroins walking amongst us on Ponsonby Road. The vintage influence is felt strongly in her collections but her re-appropriation of the past into classic and modern pieces is what makes Ingrid a little bit special. My respect for Ingrid Starnes goes beyond our friendship - her creativity as an artist and her ability to stay true to herself and her style in a heavily trend driven industry, gives her label substance and credibility as one of my generations truly talented designers. Right, enough ego massaging, the truth is in the design and I think this sneak peak from her SS11 collection speaks for itself, and take it from me, the rest of the collection is just as beautiful!
