On February 17, Victoria’s Secret launched a brand new collection—The Love Cloud Collection. With six styles, ranging from soft cup bras to lace underwire bras, this collection is meant for everyday life. Featuring a cloud-like pad, the softest fabric, a smoothing and sides and fully adjustable straps, it’s a whole new level of comfort.

The campaign features a diverse group of models including Paloma Elsesser, Adut Akech, Imaan Hammam and Devyn Garcia. With lingerie being poorly marketed over the years, it’s refreshing to see new faces who are representing women’s bodies and their various shapes and sizes. We had the opportunity to speak with Devyn Garcia, one of the campaign models, about being a part of the campaign, becoming a plus-sized model and how she hopes to use her platform in the future.

Victoria's Secret

What attracted you to the Love Cloud collection and campaign?

What I loved about Love Cloud was shooting with all the amazing, diverse women featured in the campaign. It was great to be around the girls I knew and loved. There was such a great energy on set, and I was honoured to be a part of it. The collection is also so soft and super comfortable – I can wear it all day and not even think about it.

What was it like working with Victoria’s Secret?

Working with Victoria’s Secret always feels like you’re working with family. The team there makes you feel comfortable every time you step on set, and you never feel like you need to be anything but yourself when you shoot with them.

Was modelling something you knew you always wanted to do? Were you ever nervous to put yourself out there?

It wasn’t necessarily something I was striving for but more something I admired. I thought to myself why not try it out and see where it takes me. I’m definitely still nervous to this day! Each shoot I do is different from the last and you sort of embody a different persona and I always want to make sure the client is happy with the final shot.

Who did you look up to when you were growing up?

I always admired my mom growing up and to this day. She has done so much to get from point A to point B. She’s taught me a lot of lessons about different areas of life that shaped who I am today.

When you were starting out, I know the pandemic got in the way, but then you gained momentum so quickly—what was that like?

It was definitely a lot all at once! Especially being stuck at home for 4 months to then start travelling every other week – it took a big mental toll on me but was exciting at the same time. It’s shown me different aspects of the industry I didn’t think I would be a part of. I’ve had the ability to meet so many beautiful people and travel to such cool locations that I surely wouldn’t have gone to if being a model wasn’t my job.

In the last few years there has been a shift to feature plus-size, curvy models in campaigns—how do you feel about this?

I feel like it’s about time! It’s amazing that the industry is including plus size models in campaigns and taking it a step further by having the advertised pieces run in bigger sizes accordingly. Of course, there is always more work to be done but I’m grateful that I am able to play a small part in the shift. I continue to look forward to further steps toward inclusion on all fronts.

What do you hope to do beyond modelling?

Lately, I have been trying to get more in touch with my creative side. I’m currently playing around with designing clothes, writing, and learning to play guitar. Travelling will always be something that I do, I love experiencing different cultures, seeing what food they eat, their customs, religion, and more. I hope to continue exploring myself and the people around me.
