MANILA – Plus-size model Kat Gumabao is on a roll. 

After Melbourne Fashion Week in 2016 and Paris Fashion Week just a few months ago, Gumabao slayed the runway at the New York Fashion Week, modeling for the US plus-size brand Torrid.

“I cannot begin to explain how grateful I am to have been blessed with this amazing opportunity,” she said in an Instagram post on Wednesday, which showed a video of her at Torrid’s fashion show.

“Praying and hoping that this is the first of many,” she added.

Gumabao is the sister of actor Marco Gumabao and volleyball player Michelle Gumabao.

She hopes to become an inspiration to women who have been bullied and mocked because of their weight.
