where in the world?
inspiration: Mughal India, 18th century




Mughal emperors ruled the Indian subcontinent from the 16th to the 19th centuries. It was a time of courtly elegance and ostentation, of the Taj Mahal, dancing courtesan, and jewels as big as birds' eggs. So what would a Mughal princess wear today without looking like an overdone fashion "don't"? 



Think tightly-pleated chiffons, wrap dresses, and skinny pants, with metallic accents and lots of pearls. Voila! below. What do you think-- would you rock the modern Mughal look?

The word comes from the Latin bombus, which in turn comes from the Greek βόμβος (bombos),[2] an onomatopoetic term meaning "booming".
