Bollywood Couture: Ancient Skills Yield Maximum Bling
Clothing may have begun with a leaf, but we’ve come a long way since. In India, where woven clothing dates back seven thousand years, there’s an incredibly rich history of style, fabric, and ornamentation. HPR’sNoeTanigawa reports, this history is both mined and embellished in today’s popular Bollywood films.
“Bollywood and Beyond: Costume in Indian Film” continues at the East West Center Gallery through January 12th.
