Go to eastandbayscourier.
co.nz to see the Ladyhawke
video Flagship worked on.
Ask Paris Kirby what she got out
of the Newmarket Young Fashion
Designer of the Year Awards, and
she positively gushes.
It was absolutely life-changing.
It s hard to explain how it changed
me but there were so many differ-
ent aspect that made me grow and
mature as a person.
Paris was 18 when she won the
award in 2008.
I just entered for the experi-
ence and was so stoked to get into
the final 10. As they called out all
the runners-up I realised I was
the only person left on the stage
and I thought Oh my God, I m
going to New York .
Her prize package included a
trip to New York Fashion Week to
help Kiwi designer Karen Walker
with her show.
I had someone from Breakfast
television following me around all
through Fashion Week. People in
New York thought I was famous. I
kept saying I m just this kid from
New Zealand .
She was also awarded a three-
week internship at Taylor and her
first year s tuition at Whitecliffe
College of Arts & Design.
In your first year you study
lots of different things, not just
fashion. I m so thankful for that,
because I ended up going another
way. I m studying fine art now.
She lives with three other
fashion designers and has opened
a collaborative studio space and
artistic collective in Grey Lynn
We did costume design for a
Ladyhawke video clip and we just
held our first market day. We re
doing all kinds of creative projects
on commission, she says.
So while she s still studying at
Whitecliffe and very much
enjoying her painting and pho-
tography classes, Paris is also
managing to work full-time in the
Registrations for the New-
market Young Fashion Designer
