NYFW is basically a lot of commotion, for reasons that I will never fully understand. But one thing that’s happened so far that brightened my day? Seeing 19 year old Reshma Qureshi walk for Indian designer Archana Kochhar. She told People, “I feel really good about walking in fashion week because I feel I’m not just doing this for myself. I feel I’m doing this for the acid attack survivors that there are and to give them confidence. I’m very excited to have this opportunity.”
It’s great to see that some fashion designers see the importance of inclusion and beauty in carious forms. Qureshi was attached by in 2014 when her sister’s husband pinned her down and poured acid on her face, causing damage to her face and the loss of an eye. Bravo Qureshi for beauty and strutting the runway like a pro!
