Jessica Clarke on the catwalk at Dolce & Gabbana S/S 2011.
Shut the fricken gate! New Zealand might just have its first modern-day supermodel in the making – Spring/Summer 2011 is fast becoming the breakout freshman season for Palmerston North 17 year old Jessica Clarke. It all started in New York with her exclusive Calvin Klein appearance (to my knowledge she's the only Kiwi in recorded history to have bagged that accolade). Moving onto London, Clarke walked five shows, including Paul Smith and Julien MacDonald. Milan Fashion Week started well with D&G, but that was just the beginning. Over the last couple of days she has landed Gianfranco Ferre, Salvatore Ferragamo, Pucci and Dolce & Gabbana (photos below). And let's not forget there are two days of Milan Fashion Week still to come, plus Paris Fashion Week.
GO THE KIWI!
