Asian models breaking ground

Asian models are making strides into the world modeling stage, a recent contest the Miss Great Britain Crown was won by Preeti Desai a British Indian.

Being a different color of skin has made the model scene a bit more interesting and colorful should I say. When Sadia and Hajira, two Pakistani women, saw that mostly all fashion shows in London didn’t have any Asian models so they went ahead to set up their own agency. Starting with 10 and now having 4 times that amount of models, the hues and tones seem to be changing on the catwalk and print media.

Ethnic looking models have had a lot of shortcomings in the past mostly being used for special assignments but not being looked at as option for mainstream advertising. Well, hopefully let’s hope that times will change and more people will see that beauty comes in many shades.
