Jar­rod Scott got his big break when he was be­tween

a rock and a hard place.

AAn Aus­tralian of Ital­ian and Ger­man de­scent, there’s a lot more to Jar­rod Scott than meets the eye. How­ever, what does meet the eye ap­pears to be serv­ing him very well. Shortly after be­ing scouted, he be­gan a blos­som­ing re­la­tion­ship with Givenchy that led to a cam­paign with Jean Paul Gaultier fra­grance and a Vogue

Hommes In­ter­na­tional cover. Now, he has a fire burn­ing within him, to keep on achiev­ing in a fash­ion world which he has quickly be­come adept in. It would seem Jar­rod Scott has a lot more to show us.

DA­MAN: Jar­rod, tell us, how did you start your mod­el­ing ca­reer?

Jar­rod Scott: Well, I was ac­tu­ally scouted not so far from In­done­sia, in the Philip­pines back in Oc­to­ber 2011. It all got go­ing straight away and be­fore I knew it, I was walk­ing for Givenchy in Jan­uary 2012. It was much more than I ex­pected when I first got into mod­el­ing, and I never thought I’d be where I am to­day. Although I had a lot of goals to start out with, I have many more and won’t stop un­til I’m sat­is­fied.

DA: What made you de­cide to com­mit mod­el­ing full-time?

JS: To put it sim­ply, be­cause I ran out of money while in the Philip­pines! Thank­fully though, my agency was very sup­port­ive in help­ing me get back on my feet again. I had no choice but to model in or­der to make my way back home to Aus­tralia.

DA: Did you have any pre­con­ceived ideas about the fash­ion in­dus­try be­fore you started work­ing?

JS: Hon­estly I had never thought about it in too much de­tail; how­ever, it had al­ways in­trigued me. When I started, I had ab­so­lutely no idea and was thrown in the deep end by go­ing on set with top pho­tog­ra­phers, stylists, de­sign­ers and mod­els. I wanted to know who I was work­ing for and so I made sure to take the time to meet my em­ploy­ers and build re­la­tion­ships. I con­tinue to find it very in­ter­est­ing how clothes shape our every­day lives.

DA: Who is your fa­vorite de­signer?

JS: I re­ally get along with Karl Lager­feld. He’s ob­vi­ously an icon in our in­dus­try and is al­ways in a happy mood. He loves talk­ing about any­thing and has plenty of good sto­ries to tell.

DA: Who is your fa­vorite pho­tog­ra­pher?

JS: Well, I’m not sure if I have a fa­vorite pho­tog­ra­pher as ev­ery shoot is so dif­fer­ent. How­ever, I’ve had the plea­sure of work­ing with some I re­ally ad­mire— Sølve Sundsbø, Mark Se­gal and Alas­dair McLel­lan, to name just a few.

DA: Photo-shoot or run­way, which one do you pre­fer?

JS: I def­i­nitely love be­ing on set, get­ting to make amaz­ing pic­tures. I don’t re­ally do many shows but al­ways en­joy the buzz.

DA: What is the most ex­cit­ing project you’ve been in­volved in?

JS: My most ex­cit­ing job was do­ing the movie for the Jean Paul Gaultier fra­grance.
