Plus Size Male Model Signed With IMG

People always seem a little up in arms with the modelling industry. However, things could be changing with the introduction of a new plus-size men’s division with IMG Models. 

Titled “Brawn” the new division already has its first recruit, Zach Miko and everyone is thrilled!

Ivan Bart, president of IMG Models, told WWD, “Brawn has a body positive message. Brawn is physical strength.”

Zach Miko is at the forefront for their new division. Miko has gained attention for being Targets only Plus size model. However, he’s ready to take the modelling world by storm stating that he is “relatable but still represents fashion.”

“Everyone wants to wear great clothes and everyone wants to look fashionable. We have to start asking for more options,” he told WWD.

While we’ve seen doors opening for plus size women like the absolutely stunning Robyn Lawley. One of, if not THE hottest plus size model out there, and arguably the most successful. Creating a plus size (or as Tyra Banks likes to say fiercely real) industry for men opens our eyes to the concept of “what is beauty?”


Times are changing and I for one am happy to see more diverse and cultural range of people represented in the modelling industry.

Congratulations Zach!
