It’s old clothes but a new idea: Alia Bhatt on 'Mi Wardrobe is Su Wardrobe'

It’s old clothes but a new idea: Alia Bhatt on 'Mi Wardrobe is Su Wardrobe'

New Delhi, May 16 (UNI) Actress Alia Bhatt who has launched a new philanthropic initiative 'Mi Wardrobe is Su Wardrobe', says the entire amount of purchase from her closet will go to the charity, so it’s old clothes but a new idea!

'Mi Wardrobe is Su Wardrobe' (my wardrobe is your wardrobe) is an initiative to share handpicked garments from Alia's personal closet for charity.

Speaking about the initiative, Alia said, 'It is a chance for people to pick an outfit or two from my closet and support a good cause at the same time. There are many wonderful organisations in India that require financial aid to continue making a positive and sustainable impact. Together, we can take a small step towards helping some of them with this initiative because every little step matters.'

'When you purchase products with the ‘Mi Wardrobe is Su Wardrobe’ tag – not only will you have a great, new (okay, old) addition to your closet, but the entire amount from your purchase will go to charity. It’s old clothes but it’s a new idea,' she said.

Alia’s wardrobe will be on display at the Styclecracker Night Market being held on May 19 and 20 at Khar Gymkhana in suburban Mumbai.

All proceeds from the sale of these garments will go towards the Liter Of Light programme run by Aroha, a Bengaluru-based organisation. Through this programme, Aroha recycles plastic bottles to provide solar lighting to people with limited or no access to electricity.

When asked what kind of clothes would one find in her wardrobe, 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.'

Alia also in the past, created a platform called Coexist, which works to create awareness around ecological issues.
