My Photo Diary of H&M’s Press Trip: Fall 2013

Posted on Aug 24 2013 - 11:03am by Grace

One of my all-time favourite retailers, H&M, flew me out to Toronto to preview their Fall 2013 collection. The experience was absolutely incredible and the collection is full of pieces that are absolutely to-die-for!

I got picked up via a Lincoln town car and driven to the airport, and then from the airport another car was waiting to drive me to the Omni King Edward hotel where I would spend the night. I had a few hours to myself, so I un-packed and tended to emails, then got freshened up for a night out with the rest of the group.

Check out some photos from the press trip below:

grace-hm-ottawa-press-tripThere’s just something about being picked up everywhere by luxury cars with tinted windows that have your name on them that’s so addictive. I was spoiled so rotten that I haven’t left my house since returning because I’m not sure I can handle traveling any other way again…

We previewed the Fall 2013 collection in an ultra-trendy lounge complete with hors oeuvres, moet, cocktails, a live DJ, as well as video and mega-sized portraits of the collection walking down the Paris runway.  I got to chat it up with Emily Scarlett, Communication Director for H&M Canada, to get the scoop on what’s going to be happening with H&M’s Ottawa location, so get ready to find out what sorts of surprises they have in store for us! Stay tuned for the upcoming post.
