Victoria’s Secret Welcomes Sofía Jirau As Their First Ever Model With Down Syndrome

The brand continues to push efforts to make their brand more inclusive.


Lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret has undergone a serious rebranding change these past couple of months. They have been working to make their brand much more inclusive. Their efforts include inviting stars like Megan Rapinoe, Priyanka Chopra and Paloma Elsesser. 

Now, they have enlisted Puerto Rican model Sofía Jirau to join their new “Love Cloud” campaign. Jirau has made history becoming Victoria’s Secret first ever model with Down syndrome. In an interview with NBC News, she says, “I want to tell the whole world that people with my condition, Down Syndrome, inside and out, we have no limits.” 

Jirau further explained that, “People who have Down syndrome like me are capable of getting a job, creating their own business, and working hard like me. The Puerto Rican model got into the modeling business three years ago but uses her platform to empower her community. She even made her debut at NYFW back in 2020.
