Fashion lovers, celebrity stylists, fans of Maison Martin Margiela and even an actress were among the crowd taking advantage of the early private shopping event for the Maison Martin Margiela with H&M Collection at the newest H&M location at the Shops at Columbus Circle. Shoppers with armfuls of clothing, accessories and shoes settled in corners, continued shopping and guarded their selections with fervor
When dressing rooms were full, shoppers just threw their future purchases over their clothes. Among the bustling crowd were celebrity stylists, June Ambrose (who stated she loved the more structured pieces, those that reminded her of Comme des Garcons), and Robert Verdi, America’s Next Top Model’s Jay Alexander and Actress, Tracee Ellis Ross who accumulated not only a rack full of pieces but an armful as well
Shoppers also enjoyed cocktails and delicious hors d’oeuvres during the event but most concentrated on getting the items on the list. I spoke to a few who either got everything their wanted or came really close to it. I myself was dying for the Candy Wrapper Clutch in pink but alas I only saw silver the entire night. I later found out that the pink clutch was the very first thing to go.
