FAMOUS local personalities, members of the media and glitterati packed the pre-launch party for H&M‘s first Singapore outlet last Friday evening.
Spotted were celebrities like blogger Dawn Yang, actresses Phyllis Quek and Dawn Yeoh, singer-composer Dick Lee, as well as local fashion doyenne and businesswoman, Tina-Tan Leo.
Guests shopped and mingled as they got a first glimpse of the clothing and accessories by the Swedish retailer, known for its fashion-conscious products at wallet-friendly prices.
The store sits at three-floors of Orchard Building, formerly occupied by a fitness centre. The first two floors feature clothing and accessories for women, while the third floor is just for the men.
H&M officially opened its doors to the public on Sept 3.
As proof that Singaporeans were eagerly anticipating the store’s long-awaited opening since news broke late last year, a line of people could be seen queuing at the entrance from as early as 7pm a day before.
