Varsha Thapa at New York Fashion Week!!!!

What a news to share!
20 Year old Nepali model Varsha Thapa has become the first ever Nepali to walk the New York Fashion Week. Thapa who represents Wilhelmina Model Agency made her debut at the fashion week wearing Prabal Gurung’s collection for Spring 2012. Check out the photos below. Though I don’t know Varsha personally, I think it’s amazing how Nepalis be it far or near are going up in their respective fields. Well done Varsha, you goooooo girl!

  1. omg! u ARE the no. 1 source 😀 so cool seeing Varsha up there. Love how her ethnic looks look so original! i hope the rest of the nepali models also start aiming higher now.

  2. Was waiting forever to see Varsha on the runway. She def has raised the bar for nepali models. Congratulation to her! Hope she will be engaged in more bigger projects and well done prabal for support fellow nepali!

  3. I have a number of close family members who have been diagnosed with Paranoid Schizophrenia and Schizo-affective Disorders. For me it has been literally a life-long experience of being a carer. My elderly mother now seems to have developed Dementia in addition to her various other ailments which include Paranoid Schizophrenia. It is difficult to diagnose and be clear about the best possible treatment when two such difficult diseases come together. Even my daughter who has been diagnosed with Schizo-affective Disorder and is very protective of other people with serious disorders, is running out of patience with her grandmother. Nothing seems to work and very little help has come my mother’s way from the psychiatric profession. She is a survivor of extreme abuse by her family, concentration camps, and migration to Australia. It appears to us that her problems are overwhelming even to the professions intended to deal with it. I would like her last years to be peaceful if not happy but as she often is very suspicious and does not know who we are it is very difficult to reach. She receives medication but the side effects make her Parkinson’s Disease worse. I am grateful that you have shared your experience from the inside out. It is the view that is so often missing from the equation. Information really needs to become more widely available. I find even general practitioners are often very ignorant of major aspects of the disease. I have not found a dentist who is willing to attend to my family members without me being present. People really are not out of control unless a combination of circumstances lead to a major crisis. I am so annoyed with the lack of compassion and the level of fear among the public. As a carer I have tried to make myself familiar with the disease and its effects on individuals. I really really really HATE schizophrenia and am waiting for the day when medication can target the disorder more carefully. Thank you for your site.

  4. My brother Maharaja Kumar Ranjit Shamsher Jung Bahadur ranaji of Adelaide, Australia, who is the dad of Super Model Maya R L Rana, and from last year groomed Varsha Thapa, and put in her touch with Diane Von Furstenberg and Wilmina Model Agency in NY. My blog records the love my brother had for varsha Thapa. Varsha Thapa’s mum Romi Thapa is friend of Binita Mala nee Rana and we all Royal Ranas are related. Last year lap top Lex Limbu was kicked out from our FB for stealing Super model maya’s photos. Now you be the judge how this gossip campish gandoo is uno number one ichiban SOURCE from and of Nepal. I am the source directly to you.

  5. Trust me, I’m proud as hell a fellow nepali got so far and on the big stage. but why does she look so emaciated? I’m really worried for her. last I saw her, she wasn’t this skinny. I hope she’s happy wherever she is and wish her success(without compromising her health). Much loves, Varsha!!! <3<3

  8. Yayyyyy!! happy for her n would like to wish best of luck for bright future. Really this is very exciting moments for all Nepalese n we pray that she keeps our hope alive,,Jaya Nepal!!

  9. instead of being proud of her some people just find ways to criticise.. I mean if u think shes not good, how perfect are you huh?? I’m sure whosoever’s written nasty stuff surely are some fatsos,or jealous Nepalese models who just cannot think of making it any further than Nepal. Loosers.. You go Varsha.. You were, are and will always be the best model from Nepal….. we all love you and support you 😀

  10. this is a great news for all nepali people.. i mean guys seriously stop criticizing .. she is the first girl to be in a new york fashion show.. now other people will be inspire by her like from prabal gurung.. and aim for a higher label .. we should make nepal recognize in all over the world.. good luck for ur future VARSHA! proud of her 🙂
