Welcome back to Hi Femme!, dapperQ’s sibling visibility project celebrating the incredible contributions that stylish femmes make to queer fashion. This edition, we’re featuring Peche Di, a model, activist, fashion videographer and entrepreneur. Pêche came to the US in 2010 to study English and film at NYU. As a fashion model, some of Pêche’s career highlights include being photographed by Bruce Weber and Mariano Vivanco for Barneys’ Campaign and the cover of Candy Magazine respectively. Her latest venture is Trans Models New York, the city’s first transgender modeling agency. In a short time, Trans Models has been featured in The Atlantic, Forbes, Time Out NY, The Daily Mail, Huffington Post, New York Times, Forbes, Refinery 29, NBC, and across many other elite publications and outlets worldwide. Under her guidance, Pêche seeks to turn a burgeoning agency into an industry leader and to carve out a more inclusive space for transgender people worldwide. She recently co-founded Teadate application, a transgender relationship dating app www.teadateapp.com.
In 2017, Pêche graced the cover of New York Times and listed in Forbes magazine 30 under 30 Art & Style, Immigrant, and Celebrity sections.
“Modeling was the natural next step for me”, says Peche Di, Vogue Model, makeup artist, muse, and fashion debutant. Entering the hectic world of NYC just four years ago, Modeling seemed to be the obvious choice after winning strings of beauty pageants. “The interesting thing about transforming a dream into reality is that it takes you someplace very different than you originally imagined. “ says Di, with a wise tone to her words. “This is perhaps my Salvador Dalí year. Dalí continually extended one form of art into another. He was a painter, sculptor, filmmaker, photographer...the common thread in these various forms of art is that they allowed him to unleash his individuality. For me, 2015 is the year where I would like to continue my progression.” says Di. Peche was not only one of the glowing models on the cover of Candy Magazine alongside trailblazers Janet Mock and Laverne Cox, she was also involved with the Barney’s Campaign last year, which featured exclusively trans models posing alongside their mentors and life inspirations. Before you can finish turning your head at her on the runway, you can find Peche sinking her teeth into a number of other expressions. “Like Dalí, I’ve been working behind the camera also. I’m becoming an accomplished videographer and photographer. I also try and keep my blog up-to-date at Pechenyc.com,” she says. “Through determination and hard work you will not only realize your dreams, you can exceed them. The path of life is filled with dreaming, extending yourself... But the only way to go down that path is to start.”
