Emily Baker has just done what no female New Zealand model has done before (besides, perhaps, Kylie Bax in the 90s), walking a Prada ready-to-wear show in Milan. This is a great get for any model, but perhaps even greater if that model happens to be a fashion week freshman from Matamata. The 17 year old Kiwi newcomer has had a blinder of a season thus far, walking (among others) Marc Jacobs and Calvin Klein in New York; Christopher Kane and Giles in London; and D&G, Fendi and Max Mara in Milan. Add Prada, and we’ve got ourselves a star in the making. Joining Baker on the catwalk at Prada was fellow Antipodean, Perth-born Dempsey Stewart, and at D&G, fellow New Zealander (and current campaign star) Jessica Clarke. AUSTRALASIANS FOR THE WIN!
