Photos: Aaron K for MODEL GO-SEE
With the blinder of a freshman show season Kiwi girl Jessica Clarke's just had, there's good reason to be feeling optimistic about the state of New Zealand modelling. (Because let's face it – much like our sporting prowess, NZ's modelling success has long been overshadowed by our Australian counterparts.) Enter Katie Holcroft, who popped up on local site MODEL GO-SEE just days after NZFW had wrapped, and who I think might just have a strong shot at the big leagues. Just 13 years of age and already standing at 5'10, Katie Holcroft hails from Wellington and is represented in Auckland by Monarch Model Management. Despite Holcroft's young age and little on-the-job experience, Monarch's Amanda Bransgrove tells me there has already been interest from a certain powerhouse agency in New York. Watch this space.
