This will be the seventh edition of Mi Wardrobe is Su Wardrobe (MiSu), Alia’s closet sharing initiative, on saltscout.com. The collection is set to feature stunning pieces previously owned by these actresses who routinely feature on Best Dressed lists.

“The bushfires were an ecological disaster and the effects can be seen well beyond Australia’s geographical limits,” said Alia, explaining why Australia’s bushfires were chosen as her closet sharing initiative’s newest cause. The Gully Boy star also called images of burnt and bruised animals from the bushfires “heartbreaking.”

Sonam added, “Many organisations are working tirelessly on the ground to rescue and rehabilitate the birds and animals. Sharing my wardrobe through MiSu is another small way in which I can continue to support their efforts.”

This year saw one of Australia’s worst bushfire seasons with over 18.6 million hectares of land burnt, more than 5,900 buildings destroyed, and over thirty people killed. An estimated one billion animals are believed to have died.  

Priyanka said the initiative was just one of many ways “to come together in support of this global tragedy.”

Good on you, ladies, for your donated goodies, and for helping the animals in our backyard.
