Beauty’s big break


Kalamunda Reporter - - News - Sarah Brookes

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.
