Sonam Kapoor Shares Her Fondness for Vintage Clothing

Sonam Kapoor always creates headlines whenever it is about unique and influential fashion sense. She is one of the biggest fashionistas in the Bollywood industry in recent times who set a benchmark and became the voice of fashion on global stages. The actress has recently been a part of the Cannes Film Festival in France.

The actress also said that it is high time for people to show some consciousness towards re-wear and repeating the same outfits. The actress equally has an extraordinary impact on the equity of a luxury Indian brand.

The actress recalls the time when her grandmother and mother used to keep expensive sarees for many years. Sonam addressed all her audiences to invest in clothes that can be re-styled in different ways and for a quite long time. According to her, it is a great idea to flaunt the thought of vintage clothes. She told people should be conscious and go for re-use, re-wear, and repeat the same outfits.

The global fashion icon also said that she is among those who wear her every outfit for multiple times. According to the actress, for her, the definition of luxury is something that has longevity. She has seen her grandma keeping expensive sarees like muslin. She is the one who is fond of personalized items made by local designers. She has grown up seeing other ladies in her family. She recalls the time when tailor used to take body measurements for outfits and shoes. From then she started showing interest in handmade clothes.

Sonam Kapoor says, “To me, having a product with longevity is luxury. Back in the day, my mother and grandmother would preserve expensive sarees in a mal mal (muslin) cloth, masterji (tailor) would create made-to-measure outfits, juttis (shoes) would be created to fit our feet. I’m also doing the same. So, you see, I grew up appreciating the value of personalization and the handmade. This, to me, is a true luxury. I consciously buy items that are made by local artisans, are vintage, and are even resold.”

Sonam says the outfits she buys she makes sure that they can be worn multiple times, which she does regularly, as the actress does not believe in wearing an outfit only once until and unless she is borrowing the clothes to attend any particular event, show, or parties.

The actress further said, “I haven’t bought anything that I haven’t worn multiple times. For me, everything that I buy needs to be wearable for several years. I don’t believe in wearing it once and then returning it unless I’m borrowing an outfit for an event.”

Sonam Kapoor, who is known for her impressive work in many Bollywood movies like Ranjhana, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Neerja, Aisha, and many more has also influenced her fans with her great sense of fashion. The sensational actress was seen in the crime thriller movie, Blind, directed by Shome Makhija, which has been released on the OTT platform in July 2023. Alongside this actress, there was Vinay Pathak, Purab Kohli, and Lillette Dubey are seen playing the supportive roles.

Previously, many Bollywood actresses from the first row have actively raised their vocals about repeating the outfits such as Alia Bhatt, Shamita Shetty, Janhvi Kapoor, and Sara Ali Khan. The very popular and globally known Susmita Sen who has won the title of Miss Universe, also shared her concern on this and said how it affects the environment. According to them, there is nothing wrong, and shameful about wearing the same clothes as long as it is in the right condition.
