Just five years of Styling & Profiling, Model Darryl Chambers an Valley,Alabama Native, Now Residing In Montgomery,Alabama has been succeeding in the Fashion Business with the ambitious spirit of becoming one of the best the industry has to offer.
According to Darryl Chambers, He never had the interest of modeling at all, whom now studies as an Marketing Major at Alabama State University. It wasn’t until a friend of the family stated he was very photogenic when viewing an high school prom portrait that chambers gave modeling a try. As the Opportunities and Notoriety came Darryl gained the love and knowledge of the industry. In the Industry many models faces challenges, Darryl explains that height requirement for a male model played a big part, however, Chambers made it work the best of his abilities stating that his height can either work for him or against him, the challenges didn’t stop their as Darryl wear his signature dreadlocks proudly, not all of the industry was too proud due to dreadlocks aren’t very common within the industry, the style still remained to work in Chambers favor as it gives him an advantage with several things in the industry. Darryl refers back to the beginning stating that getting into the modeling industry was in a way by mistake, but later finding out it was his calling from above all along. Chambers first modeling assignment was a show that he participated back in his hometown of Valley,AL doing the show made Darryl realize this was something he was made for. When speaking with Darryl Chambers…we spoke on any advice for upcoming models; he stated that it is important to study the industry so you wouldn’t go blind and be yourself…while take risk when pursing your modeling career. Chambers says “ The image that the youth sees of me is very important. I’m not one to try to be this perfect person because no one is, but I try to maintain the best image possible, yet, still maintain my true personality“.
Through the stylish Images and imperfection natural facial expressions, Believe it or not Darryl was never the most stylish person, Chambers says ” I just wear clothes that reflect how I feel that day. Evolution of style comes with changing times as well as maturity. Some things that I wore as a teenager I would never wear now (Laughing), because I’ve matured and fashion has changed, I started to evolve much more when it comes to fashion after being around so many different fashion oriented people in the industry and that made me want to up my game.” While attending college (Alabama State University) Darryl was apart of Elite Modeling an Organization that helped individuals such himself with the fundamentals of fashion and how to dress the part.
We had to ask Darryl after hearing about his journey, how has modeling shaped him as an individual, Here’s what he had to say ” it has taught me that life is a runway as well as a set and with that being said eyes are on you at all times so I walk around everyday as if I’m on performing. Modeling has also shaped me into a more ambitious and hard worker because I have to go out and make opportunities for myself, and once I get them I have to give them 100% every time in order to gain another opportunity, because once again someone new is ALWAYS watching. The personal habits that modeling has attached to my life is just to take time out to make sure you are always presentable all around, especially when it comes to your body; your body is your money maker in this industry.”
The Road to success has never slowed down, According to Darryl Chambers, his experience B.E.T The Game TV Show, as a San Diego Saber was definitely one of the first surreal moments. recalls thinking “This is what I want to do” as he was on set. remembering filming standing beside Wendy Raquel Robinson and thinking of how he watched her for years on “The Steve Harvey Show” as he was growing up, and at that point to actually be standing next to her was an amazing feeling, it was legendary to him. Having brief words with the cast was very surreal at the time. Chambers says Being named Essence Magazine’s “Eye Candy“
was somewhat a defining moment to me because it was Essence Magazine and that can speak for itself. Essence gave me a lot of notoriety on an international level.
There were people from overseas contacting me and telling me how much they loved my work, and that alone was like “Wow” to me!! Being in Essence put in my mind that I had the potential to go far with hard work and the grace of God.
I was definitely trying to be a part of B.E.T.’s “Rip The Runway”; however, the show was cancelled and that was a bummer ( Laughing).
