MISS CRABB AND DESIGNER INGRID STARNES ANNOUNCE 3-MONTH RETAIL COLLABORATION Old friends Kristine Crabb and Ingrid Starnes are collaborating on a store-within-a-store retail experience in the Miss Crabb boutique on Ponsonby Road, from 1 December to the end of February. Kristine is glad to be able to help introduce Ingrid Starnes, a label entering its third season, to retail on New Zealand’s best shopping strip. “I’m looking forward to adding a new dimension to the shop and most of all sharing ideas and swapping clothes!” says Kristine Crabb. Ingrid Starnes is also launching a lingerie range through the store in December, in time for the gifting season. A former member of the Kate Sylvester design team, Ingrid Starnes is excited to have a retail presence in Ponsonby, and it will be the first time her entire Spring/Summer range has been available in Auckland. “It’s a great opportunity to showcase the whole range together and to be able to do special runs of dresses and new summer things that we can have available just through the store.” she says. Miss Crabb will be trading as usual during the period with her summer range in-store now alongside existing labels, Dead Martin, Penny Sage, Celia Phillips and Areez Katki.
