Nathan McGuire makes fashion history with his new story in GQ Australia. Jake Terrey photographs Nathan for a spread entitled “Moorditj Djoowak.” The Noongar title translates to “Stronger Generations.” Appropriately so, the outing pays tribute to Nathan’s family and identity as an indigenous model. In fact, his work breaks ground with a first-time main editorial for a First Nations Australian model. No small feat, Nathan is also the first to sign internationally with a modeling agency, calling Established Models his London home.
Rhys Ripper has the honor of styling Nathan for this momentous occasion. Ripper collaborates with Terrey, who brings an edge to the season with various sharp angles and raw backgrounds. Front and center, Nathan tackles a modern wardrobe. Ripper outfits him in autumnal tones that take shape in pieces from varied brands. Featured fashion labels range from Hermès and Bally to Prada. Simply inspiring, Nathan’s ensembles include everything from sharply tailored suit jackets and riding leather boots to chic coats.
