Rough Diamond - Ashleigh Good

Twenty year old Kiwi export Ashleigh Good has delivered on the promise of her Givenchy exclusive at the Fall/Winter 2012 collections with an impressive showlist during the current Spring/Summer 2013 season. Good was discovered in November 2011 whilst waiting at a bus stop in Maraingi Bay, Auckland, by model scout Rose Packard-Dube. Pakard-Dube posted head shots of the 183 cm blue-eyed beauty on her Facebook page Rpd NZ, and days later Ford Model Management in New York contacted Packard-Dube and signed Good to their books. Good's ascent through the modelling ranks has been meteoric with the former coffee shop attendant landing a Givenchy exclusive within weeks of signing with Ford. I met Good during the castings at Altuzarra and Oscar de la Renta, and was intrigued by her rough around the edges natural beauty and her haunting baby blues. Good comes across in person as a shy, unassuming tomboyish type, however in front of the camera's lens or on the runway she transforms magically into a woman who is on the cusp of discovering the full powerful effect of her beauty. Following a promising start in New York with appearances at Alexander Wang, Theysken's Theory and Louis Golden, Good gained momentum in London with key bookings for Christopher Kane, Todd Lynn, Jonathan Saunders, Acne, Erdem and Giles. It was in Milan and Paris that Good truly hit her stride with opening slots at Marni and Pedro Lourenco, and ultra-blue chip appearances at Givenchy, Balenciaga, Missoni and Versus. Good has emerged as one of the most promising newcomers of the Spring/Summer 2013 season with an unpolished look that will evolve over time to reveal her full gleaming potential.
