We’re so excited to announce that Mayowa Nicholas will officially be hitting the runway with us very soon. We sat down with the long-time VS model to talk all things fashion show, career, and life off the catwalk.

Q: How does it feel to be a part of the show’s return?

A: “It feels incredible, I’m excited!”

Q: What are you most excited about?

A: “For me, it’s all about hanging out with the incredible women backstage. One of the coolest parts of fashion shows is the backstage vibe with the girls—it’s like a sisterhood. And of course, I’m super excited about the glam, the wings, and honestly, just everything!”

Q: What do you think the show’s return means for other women?

A: “It’s a global celebration of women, showcasing diversity and inclusivity. When women unite to empower each other, it creates pure magic.”

Q: First memory with Victoria’s Secret?

A: “I remember getting the call from my agent that I had booked the VS show back in 2018. That was a special moment in my career; I’ll always remember that.”

Q: What’s one thing you wish people knew about you?

A: “My personality.”

Q: How do you feel most strong?

A: “When I’m connected and true to my essence, surrounded by loved ones, and positively impacting those around me.”

Q: What are you most excited to see return?

A: “WINGS!!!”

Q: Similarly, what are you most excited to see change?

A: “I would say the runway impact. I think the fans are excited to see their favorite models walk on the runway; there’s a thrill about it and that brings excitement.”

Q: How do you prepare yourself for the runway?

A: “Honestly, it’s about creating the right space and energy, and I think that’s where backstage plays a role. Lots of music (afrobeats, amapiano, etc.) and just good vibes in general.”
