Gandy entered the modeling world in 2001 when his friend and flatmate entered him into a modeling competition, ITV”S ‘This Morning’ which he won, locking him in a contract with Select Model Management.
He has since then worked with top female supermodels such as Gemma Ward, Scarlett Johansson, Gisele Bündchen and Naomi Campbell as well as male models Noah Mills, Tony Ward, Adam Senn and others.
In the past five years, he has launched a signature line, David Gandy for Autograph with Marks & Spencer, he writes columns for The Telegraph and GQ, on everything from suits to sports cars, and he has two apps, David Gandy Style Guide For Men and David Gandy Fitness and Training. The male supermodel owns his own protein-based ice cream business, Wheyhey and a sock subscription business called the London Sock Company. He also acquired footwear brand, David Preston.
