Anjali Lama

Supermodel

Meet Anjali Lama, 35, First transgender model who represents inclusivity in the fad-frenzy business and a history creating First Trangender model to walk in Lakme Fashion Week. Born Nabin Waiba, in Nepal’s Nuwakot district, Lama was the fifth of seven children. 

Today, Nabin is Anjali Lama who was recently in the spotlight when she became the first transgender model to sashay down the ramp at Lakme Fashion Week.

In September 2019, Anjali Lama was named ‘Model of the Year’ at the Vogue Beauty Awards held in Mumbai, India. The Vogue title is a feat that takes models in the industry years to achieve, but Lama was able to bag the title in just two years. Her first show in the Indian fashion scene had taken place just two years prior, in 2017, when she walked at the Lakme Fashion Week.

In the two short years she’s been in the Indian fashion industry, she has slowly become part of every big name Indian designer’s runway. She is also the face of international fashion brands like Puma, Levis and Calvin Klein. But success didn’t come easy for this transgender model, who originally hails from Nuwakot.
