    I believe this comment from Sam was meant for this post, #757:

    “It shouldn’t matter what nationality they are, or whether to is a fair representation of the NZ population, it is about who looks good and will look good in the clothes and represent the brand.?

    Well said Isaac. I’m sure the boys would also appreciate it if people stopped assuming their nationalities.

    I agree, it shouldn’t matter what ethnic group they belong to. However, if that were really true – anyone from a minority ethnic group knows that it’s not – then all of the models wouldn’t be white or at least appear so.

    Food for thought…

    I don’t know why people are arguing about this, I was at the fashion week castings and there was a fairly accurate reflection of NZs general population which is according to NZ Demographics
    “73% of New Zealand’s population is of unmixed European descent”.
    Other studies in NZ and Australia show that despite the criticism, ethnic groups are actually represented at a higher proportion than their population percentage in TV advertising
