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

Vineeth Nair, CEO, AJIO, 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. So, when we thought of this collaboration with Netflix for Heeramandi, it made a lot of sense. 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.”

Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar, which marks the series debut of the celebrated filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, is one of the most awaited series in 2024.

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."

AJIO House of Ethnics is a curated store with top ethnic brands like BIBA, Indie Picks, Nyrika, Aarke by Ritu Kumar, Satya Paul, Ri-wah, Global desi, Gulmohar Jaipur, Soch, and Fabindia among others.
