The influence that “content” has on various industries is noteworthy. Certain elements of movies and shows capture the audiences so well that they wish to enter that world. From costumes turning into wardrobe staples to accessories becoming a fashion trend to locations turning into popular tourist destinations, content has the power to inspire.

AJIO, a premier fashion e-tailer owned by Reliance Industries, unveiled an exclusive “ethnic collection” inspired by Netflix and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar. Launched on April 25 under AJIO’s House of Ethnics, this limited-edition collection offers customers 250+ styles of royal, ethnic outfits. You can shop the collection here!

The collection takes inspiration from the colours, silhouettes, fabrics and embellishments adorned by the leading ladies in Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar. With fabrics like pure silk, tissues, georgettes, and brocades amongst others, the range represents the opulence of the world that Netflix and SLB have recreated in the series.

From The Stakeholders

The idea of this partnership is to fuel fandom by giving fans a chance to own and flaunt the distinctive style of Heeramandi.

Vineeth Nair, CEO, AJIO, felt that this collaboration with Netflix for Heeramandi made a lot of sense. He said, “Fashion plays a very important role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s creations that often explore themes rooted in Indian culture, tradition and heritage. It serves as a means of representing and celebrating these cultural elements on screen. AJIO’s House of Ethnics was the perfect launchpad for this limited-edition collection, enabling access to the fashion that customers adore and helping them create that dreamy Bollywood-inspired look.”

Shilpa Singh, Senior Director, Marketing Partnerships, APAC at Netflix, said, “Costumes in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s stories are characters in their own right, adding depth to the storyline. Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar will have some never before seen ethnic styles and fashion. This collaboration to bring the new and exclusive collection from the AJIO House of Ethnics inspired by Heeramandi is an incredible opportunity for fans to own the exquisite designs worn by the leading ladies in the show.
