Diwali fashion is taking a new meaning this year.

Film folk have urged their followers on social media to wear outfits made by Indian artisans through Prime Minister Narendra Damodardas Modi's initiative #Local4Diwali.

Here's looking at some of the ladies, who are giving these lovely local designs the platform they deserve.

Mouni Roy: I feel most like myself in Indian outfits! I love em! Our weavers and artisans are our national treasures. They have been bringing us joy, colouring our lives and lighting up our homes for years.
As we navigate through these challenging times, it is our responsibility to support them and our home grown textile companies, establishments and designers.
On National Handloom Day, I am exhilarated to have bought some beautiful diyas from a local shop and shopped for lovely ethnic wear designed by an extremely talented local designer and now it's your turn to go #Local4Diwali.
