Can a textile designer based in india with its work published in major media ( house beautiful and femina .in) apply for EB1 visa. She also owns her personal online boutique with
good reviews from international clients.
What are the chances of success?
Difficult to answer without knowing more. Based on the little information you are giving here, the answer is a simple 'no'. None of the facts you are mentioning seem to elevate that individual to the level of "extraordinary ability", with its very stringent requirements and (very) strict USCIS interpretation of those requirements. I could see chances for an O-1 Non-immigrant visa, however. Consult with an immigration lawyer in Palo Alto on this.

I agree with my colleague. A lot more information is needed. It is a good idea to speak with a local immigration attorney about the matter.
