Originally from eastern Australia’s Byron Bay, Jordan Barrett- the seemingly mischievous boy of fashion- represents far more than meets the eye.
Barrett began his career upon moving to New York in 2015 and it took off when he was photographed by Bruce Weber for V Man. He was quickly embraced by the industry’s most celebrated photographers including Steven Klein, Mario Sorrenti, Ellen von Unwerth, David Sims, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, and Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Collier Schorr also took favor to Barrett, and subsequently photographed him for MoMA PS1’s fourth iteration of Greater New York, titled Collier Schorr: I Blame Jordan.
In true renaissance spirit, Barrett is multi-faceted- partnering with brands in an array of capacities. Summer of 2018 will see the release of his anticipated collaboration with Chrome Hearts for which he designed and creative directed a collection of sun and eye wear. He is also designing his first collection of denim in collaboration with FRAME. Curious to explore both still photography and film, Barrett hopes to pursue a natural succession into acting. Outside of his professional ventures, Barrett has a deep-rooted commitment to the conservation of animals and has partnered with Lion Recovery Fund. His latest project will take him to Africa for the transplant of lions from South Africa to a wildlife reserve in Malawi.
At twenty-one years old, Jordan Barrett is rebellious, seductively charming, vulnerable yet equally confident, as handsome as young DiCaprio, and unapologetically optimistic. He is the epitome of youth culture today-opportunistic and ready to take world by storm.
