The showgirls and boys: Red Eleven Models - NZFW Autumn/Winter 2013

New Zealand Fashion Week is rapidly approaching - September 3-7 – and as with any fashion week, eyes will of course not only be on the designers, but the models. With more focus on Australian and New Zealand modelling talent than ever before - not to mention the recent antipodian beachhead recently established in Sydney by the world's biggest modelling agency, IMG Models - we thought we would preview some of the models who will be walking Auckland's runways next month. Continuing on from the showcard series we previewed in the leadup to May's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, here are the NZFW showcards from a few of the key New Zealand agencies. First up, Red Eleven Models.

Of the 72 models presented for NZFW week by Red Eleven, only three are Australian, including two of 10 newcomers who have never previously appeared at NZFW: Melise Williams from Sydney, a frockwriter fave, and Chloe Wheatcroft from Perth.

Here are Red Eleven's new names for NZFW.

Casey Lee, 17, Auckland
Chloe Wheatcroft, 22, Perth
Elise Hislop, 18, Mount Maunganui
Helena Turner, 16, Auckland
Holly Rose Emeri, 16, Auckland
Jordan Barrett, 19, Christchurch
Joseph Scott, 22 Auckland
Melise Williams, 18, Sydney
Rebecca Dore, 17, Christchurch

Of note, 16 year-old Holly Rose Emery from Auckland. Modelling for just three months, her bookings thus far include a recent presentation for Jimmy D, a lookbook for Kate Sylvester's Sylvester diffusion line and the debut NZFW show of Australia's Charlie Brown. Definitely one to watch.
