Model of the Week – Danielle van Grondelle

Danielle van Grondelle

Living her dream in New York, walking the catwalk during Fashion Week and shooting for the biggest fashion brands. Danielle van Grondelle totally made it as a plus size model! Congratulations, you are our Model of the Week!

Becoming a model has always been a dream of Danielle. When she was 14 she was discovered while shopping in Amsterdam. At that time she was very skinny, but her hips were 4cm too wide. No matter what she did, she couldn’t lose those inches. Her dad told her the wise words “There will come a day when the fashion world will adapt to your kind of beauty”. At the moment Danielle is one of the most successful plus models in the world and she was the first Dutch plus model to ever walk New York Fashion Week.

Danielle is an inspiring woman and a role model for many young girls who are insecure about their body. Beauty comes in all sizes and Danielle is definitely proof of that!

Keep up the hard work Danielle and we wish you lots of luck for the future!
