Until the last decade, Bollywood and Hollywood movies were the only source of inspiration for fashion enthusiasts. Now, the era has changed, and so have the sources of entertainment and fashion inspiration. Before the Pandemic, Netflix had started emerging as an entertainment dictator in the USA, but the Pandemic stirred Netflix, Amazon Prime, and other OTT platforms' presence in India. Since then, India's entertainment game has evolved, and OTT platforms enjoy a whooping viewership in metropolitan cities and developed urban areas. Along with entertainment, the original movies and net series on these platforms also heavily inspire trends in clothing, shoes, and accessories for men, and dresses, footwear, makeup, and polka dot tops for women.
At Billebon, we love ideas that inspire, inform and create, and our blog topics have always focused on concepts around femininity. In this blog, we are garnering all the fashion tips from the leading OTT platforms in India.
