It's a school day but this 11-year-old Wellingtonian is wagging classes.
Jayda Lee's teachers note is pretty cool though; "sorry Miss but I'm front row at Fashion Week watching my winning design on the runway".
She's one of four talented young designers who won the Brother Design Star competition - hard fought by budding fashionistas across the country - and the youngest ever to show at fashion week.
- Teen fashionista starts at NZFW and heading to New York
- Kiwi brand Zambesi kicks off NZFW
- First transgender model for NZFW
It's fair to say Jayda Lee is quite excited.
"I was like... my mind... just blew," she told Newshub.
"I was so excited. I was going on a plane. My first time going on a plane, so basically I was like, sooo excited."
But if you think 11 is young to be thinking about career get this: she started thinking about it when she was four.
"I watched Americas Next Top Model and I was like that's interesting I want to be a model - but then I was like I don't want to be a model any more I want to be a fashion designer!"
Jayda Lee's said her inspiration for the winning design was a phoenix rising from flames.
"The model looks like a bird in flames except beautiful."
