Watch Hayden Quinn and Tom Derickx, In Conversation

In Conversation
Derickx and Quinn were joined on stage by Mr Jones editor Ben Mckelvey. Ted Baker menswear collection.

Transformation is a powerful thing, as we learnt last Thursday night at the David Jones Market Street Store. It is also the theme of the Autumn/Winter 2019 issue of Mr Jones, making it the perfect topic for the latest instalment of the In Conversation event series, hosted in partnership with Ted Baker. 

AFL player-turned musician Tom Derickx and celebrity chef Hayden Quinn were joined on stage by Mr Jones editor Ben Mckelvey, and were refreshingly frank about how their professional and personal transformations had made them the men they are today. 

Dressed in new season Ted Baker, Derickx and Quinn were quick to assure the audience that the gloss of professional football or glamour of TV is just that - and that the true success is born from a deeper and far grittier place. From working second jobs to managing multiple side-hustles, the path to fame and fortune isn't as easy as it looks. 

Watch how the event unfurled below and be sure to grab your copy of Mr Jones, instores now.
