What is the BoF 500?

The BoF 500 is the definitive professional index of the people shaping the $2.4 trillion fashion industry, hand-selected by the editors of The Business of Fashion, based on hundreds of nominations received from current BoF 500 members, extensive data analysis and research.


The 27-year-old’s striking, distinctive looks have led to her walking in a number of influential shows for Autumn/Winter 2015 including Jean Paul Gaultier , Emilio Pucci , Fendi, Kenzo, Balmain, Missoni, Alexander Wang and Marc Jacobs . She is a favourite of Stella McCartney walking in the designer’s Autumn/Winter 2015 show and Resort 2016. Her prominence on the catwalk for the season led to Arora being featured on Style.com’s “Top 10 Models of the Season” list. The model is the first Indian model to have an international impact since Lakshmi Menon.

Arora studied for a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, going on to begin an MBA when she was spotted by a photographer who swiftly offered to take her first professional shots. She sent these pictures to a number of big global agencies, eventually being signed by Elite Paris and joining its networked agencies such as The Society Management in New York. After Arora stormed the catwalks for Autumn/Winter 2015, Vogue.com listed her as one of its “7 Things We Love Today” list, writing: "Our hearts were stolen by a fresh face on the Vera Wang runway: the moody-eyed, sultry-lipped, and enviously angular Bhumika."
