October / November 2018 - Edition XI Field Freshmen- Ady Del Valle

Culour Magazine sits with "Ady Del Valle", a plus size LGBT male model advocating for body positivity. Ady has worked for runways such as Volare (NYFW)/ Philadelphia, ASOS, MVP and the Brandon Kyle collection. He has also been featured in magazines such as Teen Vogue, Cosmopolitan, New York Post and HuffPost. Our exclusive interview is below:

G: Introduce yourself

My name is Ady Del Valle, I’m a plus male model, style influencer & Body Positive Advocate. I am from Boston and Puerto Rican.

G: When was your first big break in the industry?

My first break in the industry was exactly 3 years ago, I was asked to walk in my first ever fashion show and it was during NYFW for an Indy big and tall designer.

G: What inspires you to encourage other people to be who they are?

What inspires me to encourage people to be themselves, are my past struggles trying to accept and love myself as I am. Took many years and lots of self-reflection to get to this point in my life where I am loving and embracing myself as I am and I want to help others do that for themselves -- one person at a time. Life becomes easier when you don’t care what people, society and the industry thinks of who and what you should be.

G: What is your dream project to be featured in or work on?

I would love to be apart of any brand that’s willing to allow a visible plus male be a part of there campaigns, or brand collaboration. I want anyone who looks like me or relates to me and see themselves in me, wearing clothing that they see themselves wearing. I want to be that visible representation we still don’t see in the media and fashion.

G: What is something you would want to leave behind as a legacy?

What I would want to leave behind as my legacy is that people know that Ady never gave up. Ady fought for us so our voices are heard and we are visible to the world. Just because we look different, shaped different and identify different doesn’t make us less worthy or less wanted. I want this to have effect not only in the industry world but in people’s regulars lives.
