Inspired India chronicles the rich and complex history between the fashion industry in the West and Indian culture, revealing which western fashion icons drew from it in their looks. This list includes people like Audrey Hepburn, who wore a sari-inspired dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Mick Jagger, whose beaded and patterned styles in the sixties can be linked back to traditional Indian design. High fashion designers have also tapped into this design in their collections, like Jean Paul Gaultier, who drew upon traditional jewellery in Indian culture for his runway collection styling. Similarly, Dior and Hermès created Indian-inspired objects in their collections, with representations of India appearing on items such as watches and bags.
