As part of her ongoing efforts to promote reusing and recycling of garments, actress Alia Bhatt will be sharing some handpicked garments from her personal wardrobe for charity through the sixth edition of Mi Wardrobe is Su Wardrobe (MiSu).
The prominent among them is the Alexander McQueen gown, which is the actress' favourite.
Alia’s wardrobe includes a few designer pret-a-porter pieces as well as high street brands, all available at affordable prices. The wardrobe has been available on SaltScout.com, an online platform for charity auctions and sales, since November 30. Proceeds from this sale will go towards Kalote Animal Trust, an animal shelter which is home to nearly 400 rescued and abandoned animals.
Bhatt who has been advocating ecological and animal welfare through Coexist, has been supporting multiple related initiatives through the sale of her wardrobes on MiSu.
Speaking about the sixth edition of MiSu, the actor said, “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. Proceeds from this sale will go towards caring for the animals, both domestic and wild, rescued by the Kalote Animal Trust.”
Bhatt added, “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, in little things we do, to really bring about that massive change. I have also started small and I’m learning as I go along”.
The actor is planning to further her efforts towards scaling up MiSu and making it more inclusive with every edition.
