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.


Making quite the entrance into a competitive industry for someone who never even planned to pursue modeling, the 24-year old engineering graduate swept several Fall/Winter 2016 runway shows, and has landed covers for the likes of Harper’s Bazaar India and Vogue Italia.

Mor kickstarted her international modelling career after making it to the Ahmedabad regional finals in the Clean and Clear Ahmedabad Times Fresh Face in 2012. Hailing from the same Indian state as famous Indian actress, model and singer Priyanka Chopra , Mor began through modeling stints at Delhi and Mumbai Fashion Weeks before international opportunities came knocking at her door. She was scouted when a friend of hers, represented by Elite NYC, posted a picture of her on Instagram. Elite New York immediately signed Mor, and Louis Vuitton scouted her to walk in the brand’s Resort 2015 show in Palm Springs.

Signed with Wilhemina in the UK, Elite in the US, Premium in Paris and Special Management in Milan, Mor’s extensive career has included campaigns for Tory Burch , editorials for British Vogue, runway presentations for Dolce & Gabbana, Topshop Unique, Prabal Gurung , J.W.Anderson and Altuzarra, among several others. Her recent magazine covers include Numero China and Vogue Italia.

In 2016, Mor relocated to New York City to pursue further opportunities. Thousands of miles away from home, Mor connects to her family via Skype.
