India is set to join the world's fashion hubs. With a unique creative inheritance, stretching back thousands of years, it is also rapidly making the future - its designers ravishingly original in responding to the creative tensions between Indian and Western, traditional and modern, lavish ornamentation and minimal chic. Each chapter begins with a general introduction, followed by profiles of a selection of key designers interwoven with interviews conducted by the author specially for this book.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Dr Phyllida Jay's gorgeous, intelligent book spills over from runways and ramps to a context that includes social, cultural and historical backgrounds on what we know as homegrown fashion' - Grazia India
'Fashion India is an examination of fashion in India but in the broadest possible sense. Phyllida Jay wisely takes on not only fashion in its most literal aspects but also in terms of its traditions, whether it be in style, manufacture, textiles, retailing, embellishments, and history... It is a rather clever and striking device that really informs the reader on multiple planes' - New York Review of Books
'A must-buy for anyone fascinated by India's rich sartorial trajectory' - Vogue
