YouTube launches a fashion-centric section on the platform
Known as the hub of many beauty gurus, YouTube decides to widen its horizon and open a Fashion Vertical to better organise content under the style category. This is in line with the growth of fashion influencers, channels, and even brands sharing content on the video-sharing platform, with statistics going up to billions of views. This is said to also open opportunities for YouTube to 'pull an Instagram' and maybe introduce a shop-as-you-watch feature in the future.
