VOICE OVER TRANS MODELS SIZZLE REEL...... NEW YORK HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE EPICENTER OF EVERYTHING CREATIVE AND TRANSFORMATIVE. IN MANHATTAN , THERE IS A CONSTANT AND VIBRANT COLLISION OF CULTURES, PEOPLE, AND IDEAS. HIGH FASHION PLAYS A GREAT ROLE IN THIS FAST MOVING ENVIRONMENT AND FOLLOWING CLOSE BEHIND IS THE GLAMOROUS WORLD OF THE MODELING BUSINESS. 68 YEARS AGO, EILEEN FORD GAVE BIRTH TO THE FIRST MODELING AGENCY CALLED FORD MODELS. IT WAS SO UNIQUE AT THE TIME AND TO THIS DAY IT REMAINS ONE OF THE MOST RECOGNIZED AND TRUSTED GLOBAL AGENCIES. AND NOW, ONCE AGAIN IN THIS CITY OF CUTTING EDGE IDEAS COMES "TRANS MODELS".... AN AGENCY TOTALLY DEVOTED TO TRANSGENDER PEOPLE......FOUNDED BY PECHE DI . YOU MIGHT BE ASKING...HOW DID THIS IDEA EMERGE?? WELL.... LET'S STEP BACK A FEW YEARS AGO TO WHEN A SMALL BABY WAS BORN TO A LOVELY COUPLE FROM THAILAND. SOMSUK PASI WAS THE YOUNG MOTHER AND SONGKROD PASI WAS THE FATHER. THEIR BABY PITCHADAPHA, NOW KNOWN AS PECHE, WAS ASSIGNED AT BIRTH THE GENDER OF BOY. DURING HER VERY EARLY YEARS, PECHE CAN REMEMBER QUESTIONING HER IDENTITY QUITE OFTEN ....SHE WOULD SLIP ON HER FATHER'S CLOTHES AND ALSO HER MOTHER'S CLOTHING AND FREQUENTLY REFLECT "AM I A BOY OR AM I REALLY A GIRL.? " IN HIGH SCHOOL AT AGE 15, PECHE STARTED TAKING HORMONES. SHE KNEW AT THAT TIME THAT SHE WANTED TO TRANSITION INTO BECOMING A GIRL BUT SHE WAS BEING FREQUENTLY BULLIED AND HER PARENTS OBJECTED TO HER TAKING THE HORMONES.... .PECHE WAS STILL CONFUSED...... AND SO SHE MADE ANOTHER REVERSAL AND DECIDED TO BECOME A SUPER STRONG BOY FOR THE MOMENT..... SHE ENTERED MILITARY SCHOOL, TRAINED IN MOI THAI, AND TAE KWAN DO....AND EVEN COMPETED IN SEVERAL COMPETITIONS HOSTED BY THE MILITARY ACADEMY . . ... BUT SUCH A LIFE WAS NOT HER CALLING. PECHE KNEW THAT HER TRUE IDENTITY WAS THAT OF A WOMAN...NOT JUST ANY WOMAN... .BUT THE ARCHETYPE OF FEMMINIITY.... SOON AFTER PECHE REALIZED THAT SHE MUST COME to NEW YORK CITY TO ACHIEVE HER ultimate dream to work as a top model. Yet dreams are not always what they seem. While able to land various prestigious campaigns. Peche still struggled to find proper representation and acceptance. Never letting a good challenge go to waste, Peche decided to form the first modeling agency that is run by and for transgender people.
