I would like to thank Slumdog Millionaire for making me so absolutely fascinated with all aspects of Indian culture. Since seeing the movie, I have gotten a ton of nonfiction books from the library about it and am just pouring through them.
I'm also debating (not just because of seeing the movie, honestly) about taking a year off after graduating next May and working in India. There is a fabulous organization my friend told me about where people can work with women and children who have been forced into prostitution in places like India and Thailand.
Anyway, I say all this to bring attention to the fact that my love of India has been fueled by scouring through pages of fashion magazines and noticing so many of the designers drawing inspiration from Indian and Middle Eastern fashion. The runways were full of vibrant colors, sari-inspired dresses, and fabulous harem pants.
