24-yr-old model becomes Victoria’s Secret’s 1st Down syndrome model.


I believe we can all agree that fashion designers have always selected models characterized by beauty, physical fitness, and elegance to showcase their products on the catwalk and at other non-traditional fashion events. These models have set a high standard, significantly contributing to the perceived disconnect between their appearance and the typical person’s.

Year after year, society is making progress, so it makes sense that more and more major companies and modeling agencies are including people with disabilities in their campaigns, resulting in a more realistic look for runways and magazine covers.

Sofa Jirau, a 24-year-old Puerto Rican model, has made history as the first person with Down syndrome to work in the fashion industry.

Sofa Jirau, a 24-year-old model from Puerto Rico with Down syndrome, is a remarkable individual.

Sofa achieved notoriety on social media due to a noteworthy post.

Victoria’s Secret presented their newest breakthrough, with the proud unveiling of their first Down Syndrome model.

They phoned her and offered her an opportunity to work with their business.

Upon hearing the news, Jirau was overjoyed and agreed immediately.

In a recent interview, she commented that individuals with her condition, Down syndrome, are not limited in any way – she wanted to let the whole world know this.

The new job became her most significant achievement following her debut at New York Fashion Week in 2020.

After landing the assignment, Sofa travelled all the way to Los Angeles for her campaign photography for the “Love Cloud” bra series.

With that stated, the model hopes that her tale will encourage others to push through life and achieve their goals.
