An Acid Attack Survivor Just Became The First-Ever Spokeperson For A Fashion Brand

Viva N Diva says the campaign is about seeing "beauty in a very different way."

Rather than let it defeat her, Saa became an activist, and has turned her energies toward lobbying against the unregulated sale of acid in India and advocating for harsher punishment for the perpetrators of acid attacks.

Her story has inspired tons of other women, which is why she was tapped by Indian fashion line Viva N Diva Couture as their new spokesmodel. Saa is the first-ever acid attack survivor to serve as the face of a major fashion line.

"This opportunity to represent an apparel brand was a platform for me to set an example for women like me to be confident and have courage despite their physical appearances," she told the BBC.

"Our life is not just what we see. Because there is far more than meets the eye," said Saa in this video about the campaign. "True beauty lies in the eyes."
