Before you read ahead, keep in mind I mean all of this in the least creepy way possible.
On Thursday night whilst waiting for the first Wellington Fashion Week show to start, I looked across the aisle and noticed a girl sitting on the end of the front row. She had long brown hair and one of the most beautiful faces in the room. I remember telling the guy next to me that with that face, she’d give most of the models a run for their money.
Over the next 10 minutes I kept staring. The model scout in me kicked in and I began to think of this as one of those opportunities you should just grab. I started asking everyone around me who she was and where she was from. It turned out she was young – 15 years old, her name was Isabella and she’s the daughter of the owner of a store called Goodness. That was all the information I needed, and because I have no shame, I got up, walked right across the catwalk and stared at her. “Do you mind if I take your photo?”. She obliged me, and here we are.
She’s already signed (with Kirsty Bunny in Wellington). Damn. Despite that, what do you think? I didn’t get such great photos in the dark room, but it doesn’t really matter – such a good face, right?!
