TEEN INVITED TO NEW YORK FASHION WEEK
NEW York is a long way from home but High Wycombe student Nakita Williams is ready for her first chance to stomp the international runway when she heads to New York Fashion Week this month.
The Darling Range Sports College student was invited to the prestigious event after she caught the eye of Fremantle fashion designer Azulant Akora at Kalgoorlie Fashion Week last month.
Ms Williams said it was a dream come true.
“Walking in New York Fashion week is another career milestone for me,” she said.
“It's a hard industry to be in but I'm lucky that I have so many people helping me.
“What I love about the industry is experiencing how people work behind the scenes.
“Of course being just 15 and to get dressed in the designer clothes plus hair and make up done is a dream come true for most girls.”
Ms Williams said she had no illusions that the industry could be brutal.
“The fashion industry is constantly changing so if I'm given the opportunity, I always work to my best ability,” she said.
