An in-depth study of the evolution of royal Indian costume, the book spans the centuries from the first representations of unstitched clothing, through the reign of the Mughal emperors and the days of the British Raj to Indian royalty in the present day.Richly illustrated with a variety of materials, many of which have never been published, this exquisite volume offers a visual and textual history of an ancient — and sumptuous — art.
