Hi everyone! Some of you may have seen on Dusty Petals Facebook and Intsagram that I was fortunate enough to be invited to the launch of the first Australian H&M store on Thursday night. I love that Melbourne was the first Australian state to welcome H&M. 6 more stores will follow in Australia, so don’t despair non Melburnians.
I had the opportunity to navigate through the historical GPO building with 5,000 square metres dedicated entirely to three levels of men, women, children’s clothing and also a ‘homes’ section. I was like a kid in a candy store. The night included celebrity spotting, an incredible bar menu including my favourite Mojito drink, delicious and modern canapes and of course the opportunity to be the first to purchase in this flagship Melbourne store. However I was disappointed that my girl crush Miranda Kerr wasn’t there.
H&M have taken over the iconic, stunning GPO building respectfully by maintaing and blending in with its luxurious, clean white walls and blonde wooden accents.
I encourage you to visit H&M today! The store opens to the public at 10am. No more waiting for your next overseas trip to shop at H&M!
Check out some pics from the opening launch party below.
Take care lovely people.
