Nat Fyfe in action at the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival.

After just two weeks, Nat Fyfe's off-season has come full circle.

It started with a return to driving trucks with his Dad in Lake Grace, but he was soon back in the ‘big smoke’ to make his modelling debut at the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival, held at Crown Pyramid.

Fyfe strutted his stuff on the catwalk as a part of the finale of Wednesday night’s show during the week-long event.

The 2015 Brownlow Medallist was flanked by the likes of Melbourne model Elle Brittain on the runway and in the post-event media conference.

“It was exciting, I was pretty nervous leading in but it was good to have the calibre of models like Elle here,” Fyfe said.

“Everyone really helped me through and I think it went ok.

“The model tip I was given was to just pretend like you’re ordering a coffee. I waited for a fair while but in the end, the show looked great.”

Fyfe remarked that the fashion business wasn’t too far removed from the world he grew up in.

“The suits that I wear are made out of wool, which is farmed in areas like Lake Grace,” Fyfe said.

“They’re woven in Italy and brought back here to be worn on the catwalk. There’s a nice little circle there.

“I like to think I’m pretty fluid and can work in different environments. Last week I was driving a truck for my old man and this week I’m on the catwalk.”

Fyfe’s first walk came the day after he started running again in preparation for the 2017 International Rules Series, which commences on Sunday 12 November at Adelaide Oval.

The round-ball clashes with Ireland will also bring Fyfe back to Domain Stadium one final time, with the second game played in Perth on Saturday 18 November.

“(My plans are to) get as fit as possible,” Fyfe said.

“I play for Australia in the International Rules at the end of November, so I’ll be in good physical condition for that and then I’ll get ready for a big assault in 2018 with Fremantle.

“I started my first running session yesterday and my first walking session today, so it’s been an interesting start but I’ve loved it.”
