MODEL SPOTLIGHT: Jordan Daniels For SurfStitch's More Summer Campaign
Jordan Daniels is a girl on a mission to have as much fun as possible and make the most of every moment, and we witnessed her easy-going nature and cheeky antics throughout our recent ‘More Summer’ photoshoot. Over two days were spent weaving through the streets, arcades and old-school attractions of the Gold Coast’s most infamous suburb, Surfers Paradise and Jordan brought enough sass, laughs and enthusiasm for all of us.
Jordan made such an impression we decided to sit down for a chat and found out she’s much more than just a pretty face! Originally from South Africa, she’s a world-wise chick with a penchant for sunshine, sleeping and bikinis which doesn’t surprise us! Read on for exclusive insight into how Jordan was scouted into the modelling world, her weird hobbies and the gear she’ll be wearing as summer faves.
