Influence of Indian clothing in western culture fashion:

Nehru Jacket ,Kurta,Tie-die,Cashmere,Henna/Mehendi

nehru jacket
Nehru Jacket
  • Nehru Jacket    The Nehru Jacket was one element of Indian dress that penetrated western dress.  This style of jacket was single breasted and slightly fitted with a band collar.  It was based on a traditional Indian jacket and named after the Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru because he commonly wore this traditional garment.  This jacket was worn as an alternative to the suit jacket.  For some, particularly when worn with beads, it represented a mid-point between conformity and the hippie. It was popular from 1966 to 1968
  • Imported kurtas were fashionable in the 1960s and 1970s, as an element of hippie fashion, fell from favor briefly, and are now again fashionable. South asain women may also wear this Western adaptation of South Asian fashion.
tie die
  • The psychedelic tie-dyed garments of the sixties, seventies and today are derived from an Indian resist-dyeing technique called bandhani (Hindi for "tie" or "bind"). This ancient process involves binding tiny areas of the fabric to develop a fine linear pattern made up of small dots. The motifs are predominantly inspired by nature. The fabric may be dyed several times, different areas of the design are tied to prevent the dye from penetrating those areas; the lightest color is always used first.
  • The plush western cashmera fiber is also known as pashm (Persian word for Wool) or pashmina (Persian / Hindi word driven from Pashm) for its use in the handmade shawls of Kashmir, India.The woolen shawls find written mention in Indian texts between 3rd century BC and the 11th century AD

  • In America during the 60s and early 70s, there was widespread interest in Indian culture in the fields of art, philosophy, and religion.  Basically, three groups of people were responsible for introducing young Americans to Indian culture and philosophy during the 1960s:  intellectuals, musicians, and religious leaders.

  • Intellectuals such as Alan Watts and Allen Ginsberg introduced Eastern religions (Hinduism and Zen Buddhism) to American youth while lecturing at colleges around the country.  Popular musicians, such as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, showed interest in Indian religions and music.  The Beatles traveled to India in 1968 to study transcendental meditation with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.  George Harrison studied Indian music from Ravi Shankar, a famous Indian sitarist, and the Beatles began incorporating Indian elements into their music.  Additionally, Indian musicians toured US campuses in the 60s and early 70s
