Fashion really does bring people together.
If you do not believe this, then you clearly didn't witness what we saw at the H&M x Balamain laucnch in Sandton City, Johannesburg on Wednesday evening. This is the second H&M store to be opened in South Africa and judging by the success of the launch, the store will definitely be a favourite.
We spotted many of South Africa's A-list celebrities, including Bonang Matheba, DJ Zinhle, Somizi, Terry Pheto, Lira, DJ Black Coffee and his wife Mbali Mlotshwa, and many others. There were also well-known fashion influencers like Tshepi Vundla and Sarah Langa, and beauty and fashion editors.
The evening was not just about the opening of the store, of course, it was also an opportunity for guests to be the first to shop at this fashion store. We wonder how many people maxed out their credit cards? The store will officially open for the public on Saturday, 7 November.
This is a huge deal in the fashion world and everyone is excited about it.
