MELBOURNE FASHION WEEK INSIDER with Jason Clymo
Hey Jason! Thanks for joining us. You were booked on the MFW Street Runway. Congrats! We’re so excited to share what it was like backstage and what it’s like to be a model in MFW. It appears you’ve become a household name after featuring as one of the first models with a disability included in an Australian Fashion Week. We’re so proud of your achievement and for leading the way for diversity and inclusion.
Let’s start with your experience as a model. How long have you been in the industry?
I’ve been modelling for about 18 months now.
And how did you get into it?
I got into modelling when a family friend who is in the industry suggested I thought about it. Once I had noticed the lack of representation of people with disability (especially in Australia), I told her I was interested. She then reached out to a couple of modelling agencies, I met with WINK Models and loved your vibe – so signed with you guys and went from there.
Amazing! We’re pretty chuffed to have you on the team. Now down to the FW talk. Pre show time, any tips or tricks to get you in shape before the big day?
