There has never yet been a single book that encompasses the history of style in India from Harappa to the present day covering the dress, ornamentation and style of medieval, Mughal, colonial, nationalist era, princely states, down to Hindi cinema, and the present day renderings of haute couture. The book is a complete cultural palimpsest of our style heritage as India has seen it evolve over the centuries. There has never been a book like this before which gives a three sixty degree view in one book.
