3 DAYS TO GO! Devi Awards Kolkata!
Our next award winner to be featured in the Devi Awards countdown series is Sujata Chatterjee!
In the realm of sustainable fashion, Sujata Chatterjee’s Twirl Store is creating quite a revolution. The one-and-a-half-year-old all-women organisation is not just upcycling old clothes or minimising wastage, but also creating a livelihood for over 60 women in and around the outskirts of the city. Creating a sustainable cycle with networks across the country, around 5,000 clothes have been collected so far, which after segregation, were donated and converted into fashion accessories and home décor items. Chatterjee, who is bridging the gap between overpopulated wardrobes in urban India and a lack of clothing in the suburbs, is striving to reach out to more conscious citizens.
The Devi Awards will be held for the first time in Kolkata on 31st August at the ITC Royal Bengal.
