History of costume is engaged in an adventure of vast absorbing dimensions. For the first time a dedicated unique collection of exquisite and profusely elaborated costumes of rulers of Mewar has been prepared. The author has made a conscientious effort to present a guideline for the construction of garments, textiles used, jewellery and footwear worn with the costumes. The coloured photographs and diagrams explain all the time-honoured traditions of the past and present.

The book will be immensely useful to apparel designers, merchants, theatre people, students, historians, artists as well as to the fashion houses in Europe and America which are always in search of exotic styles of dresses for their clients
