Sonam’s definition of true luxury


Mumbai: Actress Sonam Kapoor’s influence on the Indian fashion landscape and pop culture is undisputed. The actress recently talked about the need of awareness regarding the necessity to reuse, repeat, and re-wear clothing.
Sonam 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.”
She adds, “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 further says, “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.”

On the work front, Sonam Kapoor was last seen in Shome Makhija’s crime thriller film Blind, which was released on OTT in July 2023. The film also starred Purab Kohli, Vinay Pathak, and Lillette Dubey in supporting roles.
