Meet Sofía Jirau: Latina Model with Down Syndrome Taking Over NYFW

22 year old model Sofía Jirau is making us all proud to be Latinas as she takes on the fashion world. She walked the runway for Marisa Santiago during this year’s New York Fashion Week and she has her eyes set on big dreams off the runway as well. She’s developing her own brand, “Alavett,” based on her favorite phrase: “I love it!”  We love when Latinas like Sofia bring a little more inclusion to the fashion world. You go girl!


She recently got the attention of People Magazine, who did a whole feature on her!

And it caught our eye as well! Check out more of her work and make sure to follow her as well on social media.
