Did we say that Jethro 'Gumby' Cave was Australia's next top male model? Yep, we did, several times, thanks to Cave's ascendance in fashion's inner circles (Hedi Slimane, Nicola Formichetti et al). Well here is someone to give Cave a run for his money. An Antwerp-based Sydney expat, Dan Thawley has been modelling for two years, repped by Chic Management in Australia - and recently tipped as an up-and-coming international name. But Thawley's modelling has just taken a backseat to his burgeoning fashion journalism career. Thawley has his own fashion blog - Dan The Scout - and tells frockwriter he is currently directing all online content for A Blog curated by, that is attached to the Belgian fashion magazine A MAGAZINE curated by. Thawley will report on the Paris menswear shows over the next four days for no less than four outlets: his blog, A Blog curated by and the blogs of two fashion retailers, Antwerp's RA and Australia's ASSIN. (Apologies for the confusion: frockwriter reported earlier today that Thawley would be modelling in a series of Paris shows. This was a misunderstanding. Thawley is reporting on the shows, not modelling in them).
