Trans Models NYC was started in March 2015, one of the first of it's kind in the industry. There was some uncertainty when it was first created, but the agency has flourished and helped showcase the talent of many transgender models. transgender model "I had the idea of starting an agency that was devoted to transgender modeling for a while, but never really had the push." says Peche Di, the founder of TMNYC. "That changed when I realized that the fashion industry was not as inclusive as I had hoped." LGBTQQ community Peche's own struggle being transgender and trying to have a career in fashion was the inspiration behind the company. She entered beauty pageants in her native country of Thailand before developing her love of modelling. She wanted to help those that were once in her shoes find their own place in the industry, with a supportive agency. trans is beautiful "It would seem like the moment is ripe for a change and we are honoured to play a part in the cultural shift that is taking place in society." Peche explains. Her clients have booked notable campaigns with Budweiser and Smirnoff, and this is just the beginning. changing beauty standards "Success for us goes way beyond securing employment. Trans Models is a vehicle for advocacy and a means of rendering visible and celebrating a people who have been discriminated against and marginalized. Trans models is ultimately about expanding the circle of inclusiveness in our society." What TMNYC has already accomplished is phenomenal, and will surely continue to succeed. What are your thoughts?

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.
