You will find sections like "Get ready with Camila Colheo" or "join Jenn Im for a Fendi fashion show in Rome".

This is a way of organising all the beauty and fashion related content at one platform so that the viewer doesn't have to waste time searching for such content.

According to YouTube, from 2014- 2018, channels related to beauty and fashion have grown six times. In 2018, the platform saw that these channels generated billions of views. Now they seem to think that the interest finally justifies the creation of a dedicated hub.
