Clyne’s NZFW package for this year is small and succinct. I know this because I spend 20 hours of my week in the agency. The amount of work that goes into preparing and strategising for fashion week is huge for fashion bookers (at Clyne and elsewhere) so I have a lot more respect for them now I’ve seen the process.
Anyway, the idea of a fashion week package is to promote the people who the agency thinks are in the best position for fashion week – availability-wise, what I’d like to call ‘walkability’-wise (how good their walk is), height-wise, etc. There are a bunch of great seasoned walkers (Bella, Kelvin, Natalya, Sophie, etc) and a couple of cool internationals (Remy has an Ashleigh Good vibe), but I’m going to be watching a few of the new faces carefully – Carmel is one I think has a good walk and an interesting look, and the same goes for Marie and Zara. Emma Boyd has graduated from the development board onto the main board and with good cause, I expect her to well over the week. Moira has a great walk, this will be her NZFW debut and I think she might just be Clyne’s new face to watch. When it comes to boys, I think Karl is both interesting and has a great look and personality. Wilson has never done fashion week before but he’s tall, has great measurements and a real European vibe about him which I think is cool.
