We’re so proud to be a part of a community that is so liberal and open-minded towards an individual’s choice of living life. This is the first time ever Lakme Fashion Week has featured a transgender and gender-neutral model on the runway. These models change the way beauty is perceived in a world that’s bogged down with stereotypes.

Anjali Lama makes a striking presence being featured on the cover of Elle Magazine.
