Empire Line (2005) series by British photographer Gavin Fernandes.    Fernandes describes the series in British Asian Style: Fashion & Textiles / Past and Present:    By subverting representations of British “memsahibs” and their indigenous Indian servants, and through the interaction of period British costume and native Indian dress, Empire Line explores the politics of clothing and its relationship with class and caste in 19th-century colonial India.
