India, officially the Republic of India (BhÄ�rat Gaá¹‡arÄ�jya),[e]
is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by
area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion
people), and the most populous democracy in the world. It is
bounded by the Indian Ocean on the south, the Arabian Sea on the
southwest, and the Bay of Bengal on the southeast. It shares
land borders with Pakistan to the west; China, Nepal, and Bhutan
to the northeast; and Myanmar (Burma) and Bangladesh to the
east. In the Indian Ocean, India is in the vicinity of Sri Lanka
and the Maldives. India's Andaman and Nicobar Islands share a
maritime border with Thailand and Indonesia.
India is a country with an ancient clothing design tradition,
yet an emerging fashion industry. Though a handful of designers
existed prior to the 1980s, the late 80s and the 90s saw a spurt
of growth. This was the result of increasing exposure to global
fashion and the economic boom after the economic liberalisation
of the Indian economy in 1990. The following decades firmly
established fashion as an industry across India.
The history of clothing in India dates back to ancient times,
yet fashion is a new industry, as it was the traditional Indian
clothing with regional variations, be it the sari, ghagra choli
or dhoti, that remained popular until the early decades of
post-independence India. A common form of Indian fashion
originates from Western culture. The textile and apparel
industry is very important to India. Learn more by reading
