Fresh Face: Danielle Zavala

The internet is an awesome place, every day I learn about new things and meet new people.  I became award about a new plus model Danielle Zavala on Facebook and was very happy to find out she was from So Cal/OC area.  I reached out to her and she agreed to do an interview.  The plus model industry is growing and its nice to see new fresh faces emerge on the scene.  Read the interview below and get to know Danielle Zavala.



Name: Danielle “Darling” Zavala
Hometown: Yorba Linda, CA
Agency: Not signed


Why or how did you get into the plus modeling industry?
 
- I got into modeling when I heard about the Torrid model search this past summer. I just had so much fun during my photo shoot and was hooked! Then after my first runway show I just knew I found my place in the world.

How long have you been a plus model?


- I have been modeling for about 6 months now so I’m still pretty new.

What are you goals for plus modeling?


-My main goal is to have fun but to also be a voice for young women who are afraid of their curves. I want to motivate young women to love who they are and how to be the confident & curvy women they are!

You recently walked the runway at The Curvy Revolution in Las Vegas, can you tell us briefly about your experience?


-It was PHENOMENAL! Definitely a dream come true. This was only my second runway show so my adrenaline was pumping like crazy. I had such a blast. The Lane Bryant models were just inspirational and all the other models were so fun to work with. I was so glad that I was chosen to walk for BettiePageClothing.com! I just love their outfits and to be given the chance to represent them was truly a blessing.

Do you typically do runway model or print modeling?


-I normally do print modeling or Vintage Pin up modeling. Vintage pin up modeling is definitely my favorite!

Is there any project or campaigns you are working on currently?


- I am currently working with Gordita Y Que Accessories and will probably be shooting their catalog this April/May. Gordita Y Que Accessories is a vintage reproduction accessory line that also makes custom designed flowers, bows and jewelry for the curvy girl!

Where do you shop for trendy and stylish plus size clothes:


-I get most of my clothing from BettiePageClothing.com and Pinupgirlclothing.com. I just love wearing vintage dresses because they are made for curvy girls like me! If I’m not in vintage clothing then I love to shop in Forever 21’s plus section.

What is your favorite thing about being a plus size model?


-I love that as a plus model I don’t have to worry about if I’m being judged. I can be comfortable just being me and that’s an amazing feeling.

Where can we find you (facebook, twitter or website)?


-I can be found on a few different sites. They are:
