  Indian Fashion Wednesday 21 August 2002  
We've been seeing something of an Indian summer in Britain this year.

There's been the opening of the musical Bollywood Dreams, a nationwide celebration of Asian films organised by the British Film Institute, an exhibition of Bollywood art at the V&A and the opening of the film The Guru later this week.
The Asian theme has also been seen on the high street with Indian designs on skirts and tops and boutiques selling Asian clothes. So what does the fashion for Asian clothes mean to Asian women living in Britain?
Sharmini Selvarajah went along to an Asian clothes shop in South London.
