So this is a compilation of pictures that portrays how major political figures contributed, enhanced and changed fashion in the Sub-continent
The sister of Mohammed Ali Jinnah, Fatimah was the epitome of passion, and a role model for woman right's activists. She brought forth a conservative dressing style that many women adopted. Stuck between two cultures, Fatimah, a role model for many Pakistanis, popularized what would continue to be Pakistan's most popular dress.
It is not that women before her did not wear such dresses, it is the fact that she was such a popular figure and that she encouraged extremely conservative women to come out of hiding and show the world their potential, yet still inhibit a conservative respectable look.
Before the arrival of the Mughals, the Indians donned a very simplistic and conservative attire. Two peices of clothing wrapped around their body, somewhat reminiscent of early Arabic clothing. The Mughal empire put that to rest and introduced intriquite and elegant designs. Vibrant, vivid clothing that still influences our culture today.
Gandhi represents how they would have dressed prior to the Mughal expansion.
Jinnah's dress somewhat fused two cultures together, something that continues to be done today, and popularily done at that.
The continuation of Fatimah's dress, with a modern touch to it as represented by Bhutto.
