On the 9th of March, fashion enthusiasts across the city gathered at 1MG-Lido Mall to celebrate the grand opening of H&M’s second store in Bangalore. The Swedish retail giant known for its affordable fashion had nearly two hundred fashionista’s queued up in front of the store eager to take a look at the new collection.
