Since arriving in New York, Baker has worked the runway for some of the world’s top designers, including Tommy Hilfiger and Marc Jacobs. Her “impressive first season statement” had put her “on the watchlist of every major casting director, photographer and editor in the trade”, said the website. The girls have finished school and will be largely based in New York to pursue their modelling careers, said manager Marama Nicholas from their New Zealand modelling agency, Clyne.
