Vintage Indian Clothing

A brief and non-linear pictorial history of Indian fashion. And the women who are much more than their (often) fabulous clothes.

My "avatar" is usually a photograph of the actress Kanan Devi.
Suffragettes (or more correctly suffragists) in sarees. Very high necked blouses and the brooch that seems to have been common in this period-wonder if the brooches are in suffragette colours.  
One of the women is possibly Sophia Duleep Singh.
