"Unity in diversity" - the term applies not only to the
number of religions followed and languages spoken by the vast number of people
across the length and breadth of India. It applies as well to the dressing
styles of the people. The tremendous diversity present in India in the kinds of traditional garments and dressing styles differ from one part of the
country to another, which is rare to find elsewhere in the world.
Over time, a lot has changed in the Indian fashion industry,
and the Indian fashion industry became more modern. To say that Indian fashion
has evolved over time would be an understatement. In the last few decades,
there has been a complete turnaround in the Indian fashion industry and it has
become a global brand. Indian designers and Indian clothes have made their
presence felt all across the globe.
This report attempts to study the diverse dressing styles
throughout the length and breadth of India, and give an account of the evolution
of modern fashion in the country. The report has been prepared using a number
of sources of secondary data, and an attempt has been made to provide as comprehensive an account as possible.
