Ingrid Starnes is a New Zealand designed and made label, established in 2009. Ingrid comes from a pattern-making and design background.
Natural materials and traditional elements are celebrated with vintage elements such as laces, embroidery and contemporary takes on classic styles present in the collections.
Ingrid designs her signature prints and dyes silk to custom colourways to ensure that pieces remain exclusive.
The label is represented throughout New Zealand, with a growing presence in Australia. They operate two retail stores, the flagship Ingrid Starnes boutique in Teed St Newmarket, and the collaborative shared store with Tessuti in Auckland’s Herne Bay.
