Where All the Costumes Go After Movies Wrap ??
Indians follow celebrities as if they are a form of religion. From their past to their present, their style to their haircut, their voice to their walk, we watch each part of their way of life. In reality, Bollywood superstars are the ones we look upto when it comes to fashion. Whatever they wear turns into a new fashion from the very next day.
From going on a date to attending a wedding, most of the time, the clothing we choose to wear is motivated by Bollywood stars. But have you ever wondered what really happens to the costume after they have worn it once?
Obviously, some are sold, however the end result for the rest? Is it accurate to say that they are reused or stacked and thrown later?
You will be shocked to realize what occurs with those dresses:

Take it home.
At the point when a celebrity designer is hired for a specific film, they usually take back the garments designed by them. In you remember Anushka Sharma’s emerald green outfit which she wore in the moovie Bombay Velvet, the designers took the outfit back with them.

Clothes are stored in trunks and later mixed and matched, and utilized in other movies by additional items.
Re-design the costume.
