We are so excited to have our up-and-coming Missy fit model, Vida D, as our September Model of the Month. With years of experience being an actress and commercial/print modeling, Vida now has a couple of new fit clients under her belt. Continue reading more to learn more about where Vida’s goals and her journey as a model.
1. Where are you from?
Born in California raised in NYC. I’m truly Bicoastal!
2. What you are into… studies, hobbies, special skills etc..?
I am a mother, former ballet dancer, yoga enthusiast and actress.
3. Favorite fit clients from the biz (would love if you mentioned G-iii and Marquee brands here!)?
It’s so fun to wear a strap on belly pad for maternity wear, I personally wore a Pea in the Pod wedding dress (a maternity brand marquee has) when I was 7 months pregnant many years ago, so it brings back memories of that incredible time in my life. My son now attends the same high school that Calvin Klein went to, and its a privilege to work as a fit model for the iconic brands Calvin Klein and Karl Lagerfeld at G-iii. We are all connected!
4. Dreams/goals, anything else of interest?
I would love to live in NYC and Upstate NY surrounded by plants and trees and to work for a sustainable brand who loves nature and luxury as much as I do!
5. Fit/modeling career highlights?
It’s a pleasure to bring clothes to life and to step into a variety of looks that I would never wear in my every day life. You can see how acting is an asset in this business, you are personifying all the different roles women are in society.
6. How did you get into fit modeling?
Years ago I was working on a commercial and I met a beautiful Beyonce-esque woman who told me about fit modeling and how lucrative it was. It showed me that fit is an inclusive industry and there is demand for all types of bodies where as before I was used to a one size fits all mentality. Fit is truly a diverse and inclusive industry before it was trendy to be so. The traits that one may be insecure about may be the very thing that makes one unique and valuable in the business. Love and accept yourself and things work out!
