Kiwi model Jessica Clarke has just achieved what no New Zealander has achieved before: She walked the Calvin Klein exclusive. Pre-New York Fashion Week, the 17 year old Palmerston North native was tipped as one to watch by top casting director Ashley Brokaw, who called her, “Classic supermodel material from New Zealand.” Clarke’s own New Zealand based agent, Marama Nicholas at Clyne, told me a lot of work had gone into preparing her for this first season.
“The last two years have been spent grooming her for this season, we’ve been prepping Jessica in a very specific route to get her where she is.”
Well friends, it looks like the past two years have paid off. An exclusive turn on the Calvin Klein runway is the most prestigious booking a model can get at New York Fashion Week, so with London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks to come, we can expect plenty more excitement for Jessica Clarke. GO THE KIWIS!
I LIKE YOU!
