The New York Fashion Week has finally begun, showcasing some of the hottest talents from across the globe. This year is extra special for us since we get to see some of the best Indian designers and a bevy of Indian ladies making waves at the NYFW. So here’s you list of women who are pushing boundaries, getting global and rocking it at the New York Fashion Week 2016.


Challenging all beauty stereotypes, Reshma Qureshi, an acid attack survivor, made a global splash by walking the runway of one of the biggest events in the fashion industry. She opened the show in a white embroidered gown by Indian designer Archana Kochhar on the first day of the New York Fashion week.
