Reshma was 18 years old when her brother-in-law pinned her down along with his friends and poured acid on her face.

She has been working with the NGO Make Love Not Scars and has been the face of their award-winning campaign #EndAcidSale to stop the open sale of acid.


FTL – Moda, based in New York, has asked Reshma Qureshi to walk the ramp for them at the New York Fashion Week this year. Here’s how Reshma reacted to the news:

The label has had celebrities like Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Madonna walk for them. The label has invited Reshma to not only revamp and re-conceptualise the concept of beauty in fashion, but they want to spark off a discussion surrounding stereotypes of beauty. The fashion show will be tailor-made specifically for Reshma.
