Ms Platt has been painting in Dunedin for over 20 years and tends to create portraits of young girls.

Her Kate Moss piece named Blumarine is selling for 900 pounds, over NZ$1,500.

Blumarine is the core brand of an Italian fashion house.

Knight told The Times UK the fashion illustrators were enthusiastic to be included in the exhibition.

"They all said yes straight away. A generation of fashion illustrators all much younger than Kate look to her as an icon of beauty."
