Kiri evolved her business called id with Style, which specialised in Confidence & Styling, Catwalk & Modelling Skills and Event Management, and moulded the classes into Red Studio. They are a point of difference and she says "it's such a pleasure to support the development of self-respect and self-esteem into our students. Adding 3WJ+boy into her repertoire was a combination of the experiences she pooled in id with Style and above. The objective is to create pathways for NZ talent both locally and abroad.
