Mom-to-be Alia Bhatt launches her own maternity wear line, emphasizes on prioritising 'comfort over airport looks'
Alia Bhatt has donned multiple hats in her decade-long career in the industry. Not just an actor, she is a producer, singer and entrepreneur. Now, as she gears up to start a new phase in her life with Ranbir Kapoor, Alia has launched her own maternity clothing line.
In a statement on social media, Alia wrote, "Two years ago, I started a children's clothing brand. Everyone asked why I'm doing a kids brand when I don't have kids. Now, I'm launching my own line of maternity wear. I don't think anyone will ask why. But let me tell you anyway."
In the second slide, she mentioned, "It's not like I've bought maternity clothes before. But when I got down to it, I was overwhelmed. You don't know how you're going to look or feel over the next few months and let's be honest, not being able to find the right thing to wear can be stressful. Do I buy brands I already wear but in a bigger size? Should I raid Ranbir's wardrobe? And just because my body is changing doesn't mean my sense of style has to, right?"
She added, "So I started making my personal style more bump-friendly. I added elastic to my favourite jeans, designed shirts that I didn't have to share with my husband, and wore flowy dresses so as to not invite any unwanted belly-touching. Comfort took priority over any 'airport looks.' What started off as me trying to fill a gap in my existing wardrobe, led to an entire maternity collection. And I can't wait to give you a sneak peek tomorrow!"
Alia and Ranbir, who tied the knot on April 14 this year, will welcome their first child by the end of 2022.
