David Gandy was warned he’d ‘never’ earn more than female modelS
Los Angeles, July 31 (IANS) Model David Gandy was always told that he would never earn more than a female model.
The 37-year-old says he was always warned about the limitation for males in the fashion industry, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“We were always told, ‘This is your limitation you’re never going to earn as much as the women’, and I looked at that and I thought, ‘Well, that’s wrong’,” Gandy told The Sun newspaper.
“I’m in the only industry where women are more powerful than men – and earn about five times as much,” he added.
Gandy’s father, Chris, finds the fact he is less powerful than his female colleagues “hilarious”.
“My dad still finds that hilarious. We’re in the same campaigns, we’re in the same coverage, and no one was really building a brand.”
