Last night, Joburg’s fashion-forward came out to play in Sandton City, when over a thousand fashionistas, celebrities and members of the media gathered for the VIP party to celebrate H&M’s first Gauteng store.

They got to enjoy the spectacular 2 700 square metres of fabulous fashion, and the highlight of the evening was the reveal of the exclusive HM x Balmaination Collection that launches globally today.

The evening sparkled with glitz and glamour as players from Joburg’s fashion scene rubbed shoulders with top celebrities, and international and local movers and shakers. Spotted in the crowd were Bonang Matheba, Somizi Mhlongo, Da LES, Nomuzi Mabena, Lee-Anne Liebenberg, Loyiso and Jen Bala, as well as top stylists, bloggers and models.

Adding to the excitement of the evening was a rocking set by some of South Africa’s top DJs – DJ Zinhle, LCNVL and the award-winning DJ Black Coffee. They hit the decks and wowed the crowd, spinning high-energy tracks late into the evening.
