Sheila Bawar



Modeling Agencies

Mother Agency


Nationality: Brazil
Born in the vibrant city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Sheila Bowar's roots trace back to the culturally rich land of Guiné Bissau in Africa. Raised in São Paulo amidst a tapestry of cultural influences, Sheila's upbringing was a fusion of Brazilian vibrancy and African heritage, shaping her worldview and aspirations.

At the tender age of 13, Sheila embarked on her journey into the world of modeling, driven by a profound desire to redefine beauty standards and empower young black girls like herself. However, it wasn't until she turned 19 that she took the leap to join an agency, recognizing her innate talent and the potential to make a significant impact in an industry that often lacked representation.

Sheila's groundbreaking appearance on the cover of Vogue Brazil's September issue truly marked the debut of her illustrious career. In March of 2024, Sheila made her international debut in fashion with the worldwide exclusive debut for Saint Laurent in Paris, styled by Paul Sinclaire, followed by runway shows for Valentino, styled by Joe McKenna, and Victoria Beckham, styled by Jane How, becoming the world's top newcomer for FW24.

Sheila's journey is not just about achieving success but about creating a legacy of empowerment and possibility for generations to come.
