I believe we can all agree that fashion designers have always picked stunning, typically beautiful, and physically fit models to model their products on the catwalk and at other less traditional fashion events. These models have established high standards for themselves in order to be more elegant than the typical person, and have intentionally contributed to the creation of a gap between what models and genuine real-life people look like.
owever, as a society, we are progressing year after year, so it’s no surprise that a number of major companies and modeling agencies have lately begun to include a number of differently abled persons as part of their brand, providing more realistic representation on runways and magazine covers.
Today, we’d like to tell you about Sofa Jirau, a 24-year-old Puerto Rican model with Down syndrome.
Meet Sofa Jirau, a Puerto Rican model with Down syndrome who is 24 years old.
Sofa recently became famous on social media as a result of a particular post she made.
She proudly unveiled her latest achievement as Victoria’s Secret’s first Down syndrome model.
The business contacted her through phone and offered her the chance to work with them.
Jirau was overjoyed by the news and agreed right away.
“I want to inform the whole world that individuals with my condition, Down syndrome, inside and out, we have no restrictions,” she remarked in a recent interview.
Following her debut at New York Fashion Week in 2020, the new job became her most significant achievement.
Sofa travelled all the way to Los Angeles for her campaign photography for the “Love Cloud” bra series after landing the assignment.
With that stated, the model hopes that her tale will encourage others to push through life and achieve their goals.
