If you always adored the stylish and comfortable dressing sense of Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt and wanted to dress just like her – here is your chance. The actress will be auctioning clothes from her personal wardrobe under the Mi Wardrobe is Su Wardrobe initiative on May 19 and 20 in Mumbai, and it is open for all to buy. The pick from this auction is that all money collected from the auction will be used for charity.
After making some great movie choices, Alia Bhatt is now making helping and socially aware personal decisions too – like joining an organisation called Coexist which works for the welfare of nature and animals. Shortly after joining Coexist, there’s another social work that Alia will conduct by selling off some of the handpicked clothes from her personal closet and using the money for donation and charity. The auction will be held under a new philanthropic initiative Mi Wardrobe is Su Wardrobe which translates to ‘My Wardrobe Is Your Wardrobe’ at Khar Gymkhana in suburban Mumbai on May 19 and May 20 this year.
The idea is that all pieces from Alia’s wardrobe will be on display at the Styclecracker Night Market on this Saturday and Sunday. If anyone buys clothes during the auction, then all the money will be donated to the Litter Of Light program run by Aroha, a Bengaluru based organization. This program works on collecting and recycling plastic bottles to provide solar lighting to people with limited or no access to electricity – so the money anyone will spend to buy Alia’s clothes will go there. While this might be old clothes, but here are two things – one, it is old stuff but it is a new idea; and second, it is a treat for the fans who would gladly buy it.
If you are wondering which kind of clothes will be up for sale, well then, Alia said, “For everyday wear I prefer clothes that are comfortable yet stylish. I’m not overly brand conscious, so while you’ll find some designer garments, there’ll also be a lot of comfort clothing. Those interested in knowing how they can own something from my personal wardrobe can visit the Stylecracker social media pages.” The entire event will provide financial aid to organisations and groups to continue making a positive and sustainable impact in the society.
