All this talk of New Zealanders working in New York and I completely forgot about Clyne's Nick Bryant. The part Maori Aucklander (repped in NY by VNY) works in New York in the field of International Relations and doesn't do too much modelling anymore – he didn't even have a showcard for NYFW.
But just last year the former models.com MOTW was a firm fixture in the models.com top 50 male model rankings, even making it up to the top ten, having done campaigns for John Varvatos, Polo Ralph Lauren Eyewear, Ralph Lauren Purple Label and Alexandre Savile Row.
Well I just spotted him on the catwalk at Domenico Vacca.
According to Clyne's Head Booker Marama Nichols, Bryant doesn't do too much work anymore, unless it's something that he's expressly interested in. Judging by this catwalk shot he's still got it, and wouldn't struggle too hard to be working full time again if he so wished.
Bryant's not the only previously successful ex-NZ model to be seen. I spotted this one on the newly established Chowder blog – BTW does anybody know who the face behind that blog is?

Yes friends, you see it correctly. Former Kiwi supermodel Kylie Bax has a showcard for London Fashion Week.
I'll be keeping a firm eye out for that one.
