FASHIONING A CHANGE OF CAREER
INNISFAIL TRADIE JARRON ANDY HAS SWAPPED PAINTBRUSHES AND OVERALLS FOR SUIT AND TIE, AS HE MAKES A NAME FOR HIMSELF ON THE CATWALK AND IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA
Among those in this year’s signature event was Jarron — giving a polished performance just a month after making his catwalk debut. It was Grace who suggested he enter Face of Cairns Central for the catwalk experience.
“I was painting houses, so I definitely needed the experience and signed up,” he says.
“I saw how many beautiful and handsome people were there. I didn’t even think I would’ve made the finals to be honest. I was still trying to come to terms that I was actually there modelling.”
Jarron says his mum is his biggest fan and his sister was happy with his prizes, which included unexpected gift cards for make-up and women’s clothing.
“My dad took a while to warm up to the idea that his son was modelling, but me becoming the Face of Cairns Central brought him on board.
“I just want to make my family, friends and peers proud to see a young indigenous man achieving new success in this industry.”
