Scouted at 15 in her hometown of Auckland, New Zealand, Ashika Pratt’s career has snowballed into magazine covers, fashion week shows, major campaigns and jet-setting around the world in the past 10 years.

Now based in New York, her Indian origins have set her apart but her future wish for the industry is to see more diversity in fashion.

Ashika Pratt is a New Zealand fashion model. She is best known for her appearance in the 2010 Kingfisher Calendar and her April 2010 Indian Vogue Cover.

At age 15, she was spotted by a pageant scout. Pratt entered the Miss and Mr Howick pageant where she was second runner-up. Through that experience, she met her current modelling agent Nova Models. Her first job was a television commercial for Glassons, a clothing retailer in New Zealand.

That same year Pratt made her runway debut. With Nova Models, she landed the cover of Yourself and Her Magazine. She also landed endorsements such as Mitsubishi.

Capitalizing on her Indian ethnicity, Pratt signed with Anima Creatives. Since then, Pratt has appeared on the cover of Vogue and Femina. She has appeared in editorials for Elle, Harpers Bazaar, Marie Claire, Vogue and Femina. Pratt was also chosen to be a part of the 2010 Kingfisher Calendar. Additionally, she has taken part in Lakme Fashion Week.

In 2010, she was named one of Elle Magazine's Sexiest Models. Also, Pratt was named in Vogue's Fashion Power List 2010.

Vogue said, "She is the hottest new face in town, This New Zealand born-and-raised beauty is part-girl-next-door and part temptress.  As far we are concerned that's winning combination on the continent".

In 2011, Pratt was featured on the cover of Vogue India April, shot in South Africa. It was a special travel issue and sold out.
