"am not promoting obesity neither am I saying being unhealthy is acceptable,all am doing is promoting selflove and body acceptance no matter how you are."

Arcadio del valle, 31, size 5xl and weighs 405 lbs forges a new career as a plus size male model after years of covering up his body  in shame, now proudly showing off his frame in a very provocative way in photo shoots.

The man who was once ashamed of his weight he avoided his passion for fashion, has carved a successful career as a plus sized model and has even walked the runway at New York Fashion Week. Arcadio used to let his size frame hold him back from exploring his personal style but has now amassed 15k body positive followers on Instagram.

He started with sharing photos of his risque outfits and revealing snaps of his 405 pound body in 2015 breaking fashion norms and encouraging larger men to celebrate their bodies.

The models confidence boosted him up to new heights in sep 2016 on plus size street fashion when brand volare hired him to walk the runway at NewYork Fashion Week. He has walked in more than 3  major runway shows since his debut which has transformed his confidence.

 He says;

"I wasn't happy with myself growing up and in my early twenties. Growing up in a world where the media urges you to look a certain way,to be a certain weight and to fit into a mold,it becomes engraved in your head. It's been humbling to find this confidence in myself."

My whole message is,even if you look a certain way or are a certain size,you can still love fashion and you can do anything you want. Today I celebrate Arcadio.

You had your big chop and were very excited to grow long natural hair, but it grew to certain certain stage and now you feel it isn't growing anymore.
