Bold, beautiful and successful – Indian fashion models have been rocking ramps around the world for decades. Here are some of the top contemporary models from India that you should know if you’re keen about the country’s fashion scene.

This engineering school graduate found her calling in modeling when she partook in a university beauty pageant in Ahmedabad. After graduating, she took off to Delhi to try modeling and found a break in Femina India in 2013. Soon enough, she was signed by Anima Creative Management and later by Elite Model Management in New York. Originally from Uttar Pradesh, this model has walked ramps for leading international designers, including the likes of Stella McCartney, Roberto Cavalli, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Alexander McQueen, J.W Anderson, and Topshop and she has appeared on covers for magazines around the world such as Italian Vogue, Numero China, Verve India, Femina India, and Harpers Bazaar India.

This Indian model from Bangalore is mostly known for having won the Provogue MensXP Mister World India 2014 and represented India at Mister World 2014, where he was also one of the top ten finalists. A year later in 2015, the investment-banker-turned-model also became the first Indian man to win the Asian Supermodel Contest held in Guilin, China. Having walked ramps in India and abroad, the model is now making headway into Bollywood!
