First up in our NZFW Autumn/Winter 2014 showcard series: Clyne Model Management.
Most of the Clyne show pack are not new to NZFW, but here are the agency's new Kiwi faces who will be making their debuts this year:
- McKenzie Fabish, 17, Thames
- Renee Wilkins-Foster, 16, Auckland
- Melanie Clarke, 17, Auckland
- Zara Nagle, 16, Auckland
- Courtney Patterson, 18, Tauranga
- Norina Gasteiger, 18, Nelson
- Chiara Gasteiger, 18, Nelson
Clyne's other internationals are Gisele Pletzer from Brisbane and Alessandra Ching from Barcelona.
Of the Clyne new faces pack, Zara Nagle (above) caught our eye.
Scouted a year ago by Clyne Model Management managing director Marama Nicholas at a netball match in which a friend's daughter was playing, Nagle was en route to the court to play in the same game. Nicholas approached her coach and gave him a card.
Nagle has been in development for the past year and done nothing beyond a few test shoots.
Let's see how high she can shoot at the Viaduct Events Centre next month.
