“Entrepreneurship is not about ideas, it’s about making ideas happen,” said Scott Belsky, an American entrepreneur.

From fashion to beauty to lifestyle, they have successfully launched their own brands, proving that they are not just talented performers but also smart businesspeople.

Ed-a-Mamma by Alia Bhatt

Ed-a-Mamma is launched in 2020 and is more than just a children’s clothing line – it’s a commitment to sustainability and a love for nature. The brand uses all-natural fabrics, non-toxic dyes, and plastic-free buttons to create eco-friendly clothing for infants, children, and most recently, maternity wear. But that’s not all, Ed-a-Mamma also recycles all fabric scraps to make cloth pouches and other accessories, and with every purchase, customers receive a seed ball to encourage them to plant trees and help protect the environment.

For Alia, creating Ed-a-Mamma was a natural extension of her values and love for the planet. As she puts it, “Ed-a-Mamma combines two things I care deeply about: Our planet and our children. So I decided to create a world that nurtures in children, a love of nature knowing fully well that they will look after what they love. And I plan to do this with what I know best: telling stories. Everyone loves a good story. And at Ed-a-Mamma that’s what we do, tell stories.”

Interestingly, the brand’s name, Ed-a-Mamma, is inspired by Alia’s pet cat Edward and her role as his “mamma”. With its unique name and commitment to sustainability, Ed-a-Mamma is quickly becoming a popular choice among parents who want to dress their children in stylish and eco-friendly clothing.
