Alex and Dana from Argentina.
New York Fashion Week is just two weeks away and the models have arrived – you can't walk down the street without tripping over a bunch of tall teens huddling around a map searching out their next casting. I spent the day trailing Tom Bull and every which way we turned, another Australian seemed to jump out of the crowd. In a three block radius we saw Vanessa Milde, Luci Taffs and Rose Smith. Add them to the contingent who've been in town a few weeks already and it's as if half of Sydney has transplanted itself over here. The only New Zealander we encountered was Tyson Kennedy of Steriogram/Fat Boy fame, but fellow hairdresser Richard Kavanagh is arriving to stay with him tonight. It's all happening. Let the games begin.

I LIKE YOU!
