Desi Model on the Rise
Indian bridalware and fashion has always been a flourishing industry around the world, but surprisingly there are not many Indian fashion icons that represent Indian Fashion outside of India. Social Influencer and Model Lianah Chang has revolutionized the modeling industry with her captivating and sensual pictures of Indian fashion or Desiware in the United States. With a highly-engaged community, she is ranked as the top East Indian fashion influencer in the United States. From television, to billboards, to magazines, she continues to be the face associated with traditional Indianware and bridal collections.
With an emphasis on a marginalized group, what is raising awareness is that Indians are being discriminated against in the fashion industry and there are not enough fashion innovators who bring cognizance of this ongoing issue. The assumption has been that Indians have not made an uproar about this discrimination because they do not want contributions and pity. But what many fail to realize is that the issue is not about need or appearing like a charity case, the real issue is that inequality will continue to transpire if Indians do not unite and demand equal opportunity like every other minority group has demanded for centuries. Lianah has become the fashion guru and the link between East and West. She is a symbol of Indian pride, and she reminds women that Indian Fashion is also sexy. A trend-setter with flawless features and a captivating personality, it is no surprise that her Instagram influence has become part of her selling power.
