Gandy is a British supermodel and businessman.
Born in Essex, David is widely dubbed as one of the most recognisable faces in fashion. After winning a televised competition at the age of 21 he went on to transform male industry perception and standards with his muscular build, becoming one of the world’s most successful male supermodels. He has worked with some of the biggest brands and the best names in the industry, known for his iconic campaigns that have created waves around the world. Alongside modelling, David has collaborated with prestigious British luxury and high street labels. He has also written for GQ, The Telegraph and Vanity Fair magazines as well as being the only male model to walk the ‘runway' at the Olympics closing ceremony in 2012.
In 2021 David celebrated 20 years in the industry and
marked two decades of experience with the launch of David Gandy Wellwear which
combines two of his great passions; style and well-being. Throughout his career
he has actively campaigned for mental and physical health long before they
captured the zeitgeist of recent years. It was his belief that “clothing
shouldn’t just make you look good, it should make you feel good too”, which led
to Wellwear; a world first concept bringing apparel and well-being together to
explore the scientific benefits of clothing.
Outside of fashion David is known for his love of classic cars and philanthropic work including his Ambassadorship for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. He lives in London with his partner Stephanie, two daughters and dog Dora.
