"I think it's important to make space, but it's more important to recycle, reuse, and rotate items when we can," Shaira explains. "Whether you're closet cleaning to make space for more stuff, or to have a new lifestyle, it seems like a healthy exercise for your well-being," she adds. Stylist Austin Cortiguerra further explains that closet cleanups help in decluttering as this is "a forever work in progress."

Shaira will be holding a two-day sale from October 7-8, 10am to 6pm at the Elite Manila Studio, 3/F A-Venue Mall, Makati Ave. together with "models, designers, stylists, makeup artists, and people in the fashion industry." She describes this year's participants as "a mixed bunch" who have been "accumulating too many things from [their] shoots and professions."

And the best part? "Prices start at P20 for clothes, and highest will probably be P3000 for the real designer stuff. It will be pretty cheap, since we are really looking to clear our closets!" Shaira tells Preview.
