Who is Zach Miko the first male plus size model of the IMG agency?

The democratization of fashion has reached every corner, male models already have their division plus size in the IMG modeling agency. The newly opened β€œBrawn”, name that adopts this category of curvy models, has its first member: Zach Miko. But who is this young American and what should we know about him?

Zach Miko is an actor, comedian and writer who rose to fame thanks to the Target brand, when in 2015 he chose him to star in his line catalog big and tall. With almost two meters tall and 101 inches of hip, Zach Miko it is everything but a standard, something that has benefited him in his fledgling career as a model and thanks to which IMG has signed him to be part of his squad Brawn (word translated from English could resemble "big guy").

β€œThe positive message of the body and the diversity of size is something relevant and that continues to be in everyone's mind. We have to spread the conversation for men”, Said Ivan Bart, president of IMG to the WWD website.

Nothing is further from reality, Zach Miko is not a gym man, he does not have defined abs based on hours and hours dedicated to body worship. Nor does he need. Thanks to this it has broken the molds of an industry where It is not scary to talk about models curvy, where the names of Ashley Graham or Candice Huffine begin to expand their effect and where men still did not have great representation. Until now.
