Jessica Clarke at Lanvin. Photos: tfs Continuing her breakout freshman season – and already the most successful New Zealand runway model, like, ever – is Jessica Clarke who’s currently working Paris Fashion Week. Five days in, she has thus far walked five shows (photos below), including, and most notably, Lanvin and Sonia Rykiel. No word yet on whether more is to come this week for the Palmerston North 17 year old, but according to Clyne (Clarke’s mother agency) there are some extremely exciting options in the pipeline.
