American lingerie and beauty brand Victoria's Secret has introduced its first model with Down's syndrome, Sofia Jirau. She is from Puerto Rico and it was always her dream to work for the brand.

Victoria's Secret got her onboard for the campaign of their new collection The Love Cloud.

Sharing a photograph of the model on Instagram, the retail company wrote, "By age 25, Puerto Rican model, Sofia Jirau, has already conquered her ultimate dream: to model on the most important runways in the world. In 2019, Sofia launched the online store, Alavett, selling clothing, accessories, and home products".

In the picture, Sofia flaunted a natural look and was dressed in a bra from the brand's latest collection. She also sported a personalised necklace featuring her name.

25-year-old Sofia also shared the delightful news with her followers on Instagram. "One day I dreamed it, I worked on it and today, it is a dream come true. I can finally tell you my big secret - I am the first Victoria's Secret model with Down syndrome," she wrote.

"Thanks to all of you for always supporting me in my projects! Thanks to @victoriassecret for seeing me as a #NoLimits model and making me part of the Love Cloud Collection inclusion campaign. This is just the beginning, now it's formed," she added.

"It is a dream come true. I am happy to be able to show everyone that Sofia Jirau is going to shine around the world. I feel confident because fear is not in my vocabulary," Sofia told the brand when asked what this campaign meant to her.

Sofia Jirau also walked the ramp at the New York Fashion Week in 2020.
