The 10 sections aimed at inserting India’s presence in global design through different lenses that ranged from inspiration to innovation. The primary section basically looked at various flashpoints of inspiration. “The influence of India’s culture of dress and its superb craft traditions has been exerted beyond its frontiers for more than a thousand years,” states the exhibition brochure. Yet the first garment you encountered seemed somewhat perplexing in that it seemed to be an outlier with no apparent connect to the country. Jellyfish, the outfit from the late Alexander McQueen’s final collection, Plato’s Atlantis, consists of dress, leggings and Armadillo boots (made famous by Lady Gaga) embroidered with iridescent enamel paillettes. A link to India is however established in the caption of a framed picture of a blue-green beetle on the wall behind. It points out the Deccan beetle wing embroidery, practised in India, as the scaly inspiration for the textile used by McQueen for his garment. A mannequin is dressed in Captain John Foote’s jama (robe), patka (a small shawl used as a sash around the waist) and shawl, as seen in the painting.

Ahead of the clothes room, a short corridor lined with tables with sketches by Saint Laurent himself, featured the designs displayed in the previous room. The dim corridor was illuminated by a bright light at the end where Isha Ambani Piramal’s Valentino wedding lehnga, a stunning piece in guipure lace with gold foil work that imitates the texture of zari embroidery, was displayed in the next section, titled “Valentino — Marriage of East and West”. Khadi has changed drastically over the decades, since its days as the robust, undyed, handwoven fabric promoted by Gandhi. Most of the fabric that is sold now is mechanised khadi, woven with new model charkhas, where the yarn is made from mechanised and semi mechanised processes even if handwoven. Big menswear textile brands like Raymonds, Arvind Mills and Aditya Birla Textiles have also been working with KVIC to launch khadi collections. Traditional Indian music is divided between the Hindustani (northern) and Carnatic (southern) schools. (The Hindustani style is influenced by musical traditions of the Persian-speaking world.) Instrumental and vocal music is also quite varied and frequently is played or sung in concert (usually by small ensembles). It is a popular mode of religious expression, as well as an essential accompaniment to many social festivities, including dances and the narration of bardic and other folk narratives. Some virtuosos, most notably Ravi Shankar (composer and sitar player) and Ali Akbar Khan (composer and sarod player), have gained world renown. The most popular dramatic classical performances, which are sometimes choreographed, relate to the great Hindu epics the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. Regional variations of classical and folk music abound. All of these genres have remained popular—as has devotional Hindu music—but interest in Indian popular music has grown rapidly since the late 20th century, buoyed by the great success of motion picture musicals. Western classical music is represented by such institutions as the Symphony Orchestra of India, based in Mumbai, and some individuals (notably conductor Zubin Mehta) have achieved international renown. Theatre, film, and literature India in Fashion explores the beautiful and sophisticated history and aesthetics of traditional Indian fashion, dress, and textiles and their profound impact on European and American fashion from the eighteenth century to today.
