India's models accuse fashion industry of racism

This week there is the news that there is racism within India’s fashion industry.

Several of the country's top models have spoken out about prejudice and discrimination in the Indian industry. They say India has an obsession with pale skin that dates back to British colonial rule.

This is awful news for Indian models that in their own country they are not accepted and used for modelling and catwalks. However does this mean in the west that a trend may begin to emerge that Indian models will become more popular and more accessible as they will travel to get the work? Only time will tell.
The soft dark complexion of a Indian model is a nice change to the white models we have as they have a different look which is not used so often.
