TikTok personality Emira D’Spain is celebrating becoming the first black transgender model to work with Victoria’s Secret.
Emira, better known on social media as XOXOEMIRA has produced a Valentine’s Day TikTok in collaboration with the lingerie brand.
Her clip shows how to enjoy Valentine’s Day without a significant other.
Emira, 25, said, “My entire platform is built on confidence and self-love.
“I want to empower young trans women and men around the world to show them that the beauty and fashion industries are changing. Especially if you are a person of color.
“I am so grateful to work with Victoria’s Secret and hope this paves the way for others after me.”
D’Spain gave credit to fellow model Valentina Sampaio for paving the way. In 2019, Sampaio became the first transgender model to work with Victoria’s Secret’s PINK line.
Emira, who is signed with Andrew Warren’s marketing agency, CollXab, was born in Dubai, and raised in Dallas. She uses her TikTok platform to offer her followers insights on beauty and fashion and also talks about her transition, dating, friendships, and life in New York City.
