#1575 Ashika Pratt – the gangsta

Photo: supplied

Meet model Ashika Pratt. The New Zealand-born 20 year old (of Indian and British parentage) has been very quietly building up an impressive body of international work over the past 24 months. So why have we never heard about her? Beats me, but it could be that her favoured territories are in the South/South East Asian regions, namely India and Thailand. Among editorials for Harper's Bazaar, Elle, Marie Claire and L'Officiel, Pratt has four Vogue India stories under her belt plus May's multi-girl cover (see below, she's sitting down second from the right) – an issue that was celebrated for promoting darker skinned models. Not bad for a model who stands at five foot eight. GO THE KIWIS! Check out a selection of her work below.





I LIKE YOU!

Ashika was also in the first Max Women's Republic of New Zealand campaign. Gorgeous girl with a lovely personality to boot! Such a fan.
