Portrait of Princess Rafat Zamani Begum, c. 1960. Portrait of Princess Rafat Zamani Begum of Rampur (1907-1987), wife of Nawab Raza Ali Khan, taken by the famous Kinsey Brothers studio of Delhi. Part of her garment is the typical Farshi pyjama, worn by Muslim women between the 17th and 20th centuries, entailing a two-legged skirt that fell to the ankles and then trailed the floor. It required the wearer to fold parts of it over the left arm while standing or walking.
