Two years ago, Jordan Daniels was scouted by 62 Models at the New Zealand Young Designers Fashion Show, but only just started modelling about a year ago. She has since become one of New Zealand’s rising stars in the industry with the new Miss Crabb and Kate Sylvester campaigns already under her belt. Daniels also has a number of other campaigns and lookbooks coming out soon including; Wynn Hamlyn, Jimmy D and Jared Godman.

Now signed with Chic in Australia, she quickly jumped across the ditch to model in Sydney and Melbourne. After working briefly in Australia, Daniels feels like there are more people on one job than there are in NZ. She plans to move to Sydney for an increased time frame to get used to working overseas independently. One of the biggest challenges Daniels has faced so far was going to Sydney for her first job. “It was really scary and exciting to work for my first time independently overseas and one of my biggest achievements to this day,” explained Daniels.

When she was younger she looked up to her mother a lot who was a model around the same age as Daniel is now. Now she has added to her list of inspirational people Victoria’s Secret Angel Jasmine Tookes, Khloe Kardashian and Rihanna. Her ultimate goal is to walk for Victoria’s Secret, but going in NZFW this year Daniels is looking forward to seeing Wynn Hamlyn, Kate Sylvester and Erik Yvon.
