Alia Bhatt’s generous gesture
As part of her ongoing efforts to promote reusing and recycling of garments, Alia Bhatt will be sharing handpicked favourites from her personal wardrobe for charity in the sixth edition of Mi Wardrobe is Su Wardrobe (MiSu).
Alia’s wardrobe includes a few designer pieces as well as high street brands, all available at affordable prices. Proceeds from this sale will go towards an animal shelter called Kalote Animal Trust, which is home to nearly four hundred rescued and abandoned animals.
For the initiative, the actress has even decided to part away with one of her beloved Alexander McQueen gowns. Talking about it, Alia says, “Sharing garments only benefits the environment, and I’m really happy to open my closet to my fans across the globe. This wardrobe includes select pieces that I’ve loved and treasured, including a luxury designer gown worn to a popular pre-awards function.”
Further, the Gully Boy actress shares how she has begun to realise the harmful effects of fast fashion and insists that people too board the eco-friendly bandwagon. “The concept of sharing wardrobes is slowly but surely catching on and we need more and more people to understand the importance of reusing garments. Changing mindsets is an uphill task but time is precious as far as the environment is concerned. We need to adopt an environment-conscious approach in our daily lives to really bring about that massive change. I have also started small and I’m learning as I go along,” she concludes
