South Asia and Southeast Asia boast a large number of diverse ethnic  groups, each with their own languages and cultural practices. Here dress  traditions may be rooted in ancient, mystical beliefs. Textiles, many  spectacularly embellished, very often have symbolic significance as  visual markers of cultural and religious identity. South Asia and Southeast Asia  explores this land of sharp contrasts, from the glamour of Bollywood to  the vast garment industry, from ritual cross-dressing to Vietnamese  fashion designers, and from Bhutanese wedding costumes to Mahatma  Gandhi's use of cloth as a powerful political statement. In so doing, it  provides an enticing overview of a region of magnificently rich  clothing and textile traditions. - See more at:
