Abstract:A study of the development of Mughal and Deccani costumes, based on Dr Moti Chandra's research. The costumes popular under the Mughals were the Uzbek trouser and tunic under Babur and Humayun; the chakdar jama, churidar pyjama, and ghagra-choli-odhni in the time of Akbar; Rajasthani and Gujarati styles under Jahangir; rich and colourful costumes in Shah Jahan's period; and the puritan style of Aurangzeb. The Deccani costumes included silks, brocades, and a fusion of Hindu and Muslim costumes.
