Mansha Pasha has recently encountered a bit of a spat on social media after her comments on sustainable fashion being a trendy name for 'desi fashion'. Diligent twitter users were quick to respond to the Laal Kabootar star's comments, but she later took to clarify her prior statements.
"Growing up my sisters and i always wore each others clothes multiple times. The same was done on the Zindagi Gulzar Hai set to give the true vibe of a desi household. Some scenesI wore Sanam's clothes she wore mine or Sana's. In short, desi fashion is sustainable fashion."
Mansha later clarified in another tweet, that she was in fact criticising the trend of calling desi and ethnic fashion, 'sustainable'. In the tweet from her social media platform which caused the debate, the actor wrote,
“With respect to my last tweet – ethical fashion encompasses many things including worker rights, [the] ecological impact of dying fabric, water consumption. I was speaking of the trend of reusing clothing done in desi households already and is promoted as sustainable fashion online.”
Do you agree with the Aangan actor's stance on the ongoing trend of labelling desi fashion as sustainable fashion? Let us know in the comments!
