NEW YORK — Nary Manivong is taking a novel route to resurrecting his line.
Manivong, who was behind the now-shuttered Nahm line with Alexandria Hilfiger, is continuing on his own. This time, he is relying on Kickstarter, the world’s largest funding digital platform that supports up-and-coming creative talent, to support his next chapter. Kickstarter is mostly used by start-ups to get consumer-based funding, and Manivong’s goal is to raise $25,000 through a campaign to encourage people to help fund his new line. It includes a video using footage from his recent “Dressed” documentary.
