Bollywood has for long exerted a deep influence on popular Indian fashion. Any piece of jewellery adorned by an actress in a hit movie immediately becomes a prime sartorial trend for designers to reproduce.

The Black and White era in Indian cinema was heralded in 1913 with the release of DadasahebPhalke’s ‘Raja Harishchandra’. The moving images, even without sound thrilled, intrigued and captured the imagination of the Indian cinema goer with powerful performances from the actors.
