IMG sign their first MALE plus size model

Congrats to Zach Miko who has signed to IMG as their first plus size male model. Zach who stands at 6’6 – (at 5’2 I’m not sure I’d even be able to see his face if we met), Zach is the first time IMG – who currently have plus size powerhouse Ashley Graham on their books has forayed into male plus size models.

The division which has been named ‘Brawn’ – representing physical strength hopes to convince the industry to start diversifying the male models used within the industry too because the truth is, just like in womenswear, men don’t get that much diversity either.

Zach who is an actor, comedian and writer has already worked with Target in 2015, posing up a storm in their big and tall line.

IMG president Ivan Bart told WWD that “he signed Miko, who hails from Connecticut and was an Eagle Scout, because he was relatable but still represented fashion. I want every man in America to say, ‘I can do that’ when they see Zach… In 2016 everybody has some vanity. Everyone wants to wear great clothes and everyone wants to look fashionable,” Bart said. “We have to start asking for more options.”

Congrats IMG and Zach!
