Jordan and Zac Stenmark were doing their ag economics degree on AFL (Australian Football League) Scholarships at The University of Sydney, while also training with the AFL Club, Greater Western Sydney, and working in a café, when a friend suggested they should give modelling a go.
Launching their careers with a 60-page international editorial with the prestigous L’Officiel Hommes Paris, the boys were soon flown to London for a private meeting with Tom Ford, and made their international runway debut when they exclusively opened and closed the prestigious Calvin Klein Spring 2013 show during Milan Fashion Week.
Perhaps best known for their athleticism, down-to-earth attitude, and strong work ethic, Jordan and Zac have a chameleon-like ability to channel both commercial and high-fashion styles. They’ve had the esteemed pleasure of sitting for Bruce Webber, Terry Richardson, and working with Carine Roitfield.
