BBA Special: South Asian Supermodels

Diversity in fashion hasn't come very far. Even in 2012, the international fashion industry is struggling to present diversity among shapes, sizes and colors on the main stage. However, over the past few decades there have been a handful of brown faces that have carved a niche, & opened the door for more South Asian models to reign. Here is a look at some of the women who have walked the international catwalk. Visit our Facebook page for daily posts & updates as we uncover new faces. We hope to see many more South Asian faces representing high-fashion in the near future!
