Kiwi fashion prodigy's collection hits the catwalk

Sean Kelly is a New Zealander who is taking the fashion world by storm in New York.

His collection was on showcase at New Zealand Fashion Week, and if the name rings a bell but you can't put a face to the name, he was the winner of a TV series called Project Runway.

For the last three months, Mr Kelly has been on lockdown - hidden away in a tiny Auckland studio working on his maiden New Zealand Fashion Week show.

He's come a long way since he learnt to sew at Hawera Intermediate School.

From interning for Alexander McQueen in London, to studying a Bachelor of Design at Massey University, to dressing supermodel Heidi Klum and wining Project Runway.
