There’s a new model steeling the spotlight, and this is no understatement. Neelam Johal, an 18-year-old Psychology student from Coventry has just landed her first campaign and it’s for Burberry.
Now, we aren’t entirely sure if Neelam knows just how significant this will be for Asian girls all around the globe; she is effectively what Beverly Johnson and Naomi Campbell were for the African models of today, such as Jourdan Dunn, Chanel Iman and Joan Smalls.
Johal possesses a refreshing, simplistic and striking Asian beauty that will lend her well in the high fashion world she is about to dominate. Having come from a Sikh background, she has already become an absolute marvel and inspiration for normal young Asian women all over the globe.
There’s a new girl on the block and 2014 will be the year of Neelam Johal.
