Synopsis:

East and West intersect in this gorgeous exploration of South Asian textiles and their influence on British fashion and dress. From 17th-century chintzes to 19th-century silks and paisleys to the oriental­ism craze of the 1960s, these lush, patterned fabrics have long had an impact on Western style. Complete with stunning photographs of items from the V&A?s collections, as well as historical images and more recent photos of catwalk and street fashions, the book focuses on contemporary British Asian designers, South Asian textile production, and the presence of South Asian style in shops and urban spaces.
