Born in Amsterdam Slotervaart, The Netherlands with Cameroonian Orgins
Victoria Mabelle grew up in the 90s era rather groomed to become a ballerina or a lawyer, but fortunate to witness the rise of the beautiful, confident and elegant gazelle looking Supermodels who years later would inspire her to get into the modelling industry.
Victoria started modelling in her early teens in Amsterdam, doing testshoots and little gigs to profile herself and to make a portfolio.
In 2014 she walked her first show for Amsterdam Fashionweek which she opened.
In 2015 she won "Publics Favorite" at the finals of the Dutch Makeup Awards.
Around her 18th birthday Victoria was signed with agencies briefly, but decided to rather become independent during college in Amsterdam, where she studied Social Security and Human Resources in order to attend law school. She also obtained a certificate in basic Makeup and Styling at the IMKO beauty school.
With her newly found base in Belgium she mostly travelled through the Benelux as well as to France, Spain, Hungary, Germany, the UK and the Czech republic where she did several editorials, art projects and fashion shows.
She also joined a modelling competition in which she ended in the top 10 in the Finals.

Now more then 8 years in the game and back in her hometown, Victoria is expanding her brand into personal Film- and art projects, as well as consulting and coaching as a form of giving back to those that feel inspired by her work. Besides her work in the industry, she works in her community as a social worker in youth home programs.
She finds her inspiration in everyday life. From her personal experiences to outside influences and collective events. A chameleon with looks, a broad variety of interests and a venusian aura with a dancers body. Her personal style can be described as a retro mix including 50s,80s and 90s influences along with cultural historical aspects inspired by her personal road to Divine Femininity.
Through her journey to understanding the importance of self comfort and self love and to be able to express one's self in any way that makes one comfortable.She grew up becoming the free spirited woman she is now with an open minded view of life by understanding "uniqueness" through the differences in culture, tradition, norms and values,but hobbies and interest as well.
In 2019 the brand C'estmabellevictoire was born...
