Making Designs on Fashion: Producing Contemporary Indian Aesthetics.

This dissertation is about the making of the Indian fashion designer and highlights how the

birth of the industry has fashioned new subjects and subjectivities. It traces constitutive shifts and

tensions in the fashion industry over the last three decades, including the rise of bridal wear or

couture, the appropriation of craft and resistances to it, and the return of ready-to-wear production

via e-commerce.
