The long wait for the launch of H&M in South Africa is finally over, in less than 24 hours, Saturday, the 7th of November, at 11am to be exact, the Sandton City store will open its doors to all fashionistas in Johannesburg for a serious fashion–fuelled day of shopping!
With that said, Tuesday, the 3rd saw the fashion-forward came out to play when more than 1000 fashionistas, celebrities and members of the media gathered for the VIP party of H&M’s first Gauteng store. (Sigh, for not being able to be there myself)

The invited guests were treated to flowing drinks, delicious snacks and amazing music whilst discovering the spectacular 2700 square meters of fabulous fashion. The highlight of the evening was the reveal of the exclusive HM x Balmaination Collection that launched globally on the 4th. (View second blog on H&M Balmain Collab to follow)
