Gone are the days when fashion shows were reserved for tall, glamorous models alone.
The Bombay Times Fashion Week held in Mumbai sent out a bold message of inclusivity when designer Archana Kochhar introduced her showstopper.
It was nothing short of phenomenal to watch Laxmi Narayan Tripathi, one of India's leading LGTBQ activists open the show for the designer.
She was joined by trans model and beauty queen Navya Singh on the ramp.
