H&M and Uptown Magazine celebrated on July 29 the grand re-opening of H&M in Harlem, which is located on 125th Street between Lenox Avenue and Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Blvd. The hosts packed the fashion retail store with more than 400 VIP guests, who were treated to great music, food and drinks and a first-hand look at all the clothing inside the store.
Some of the cool guests I was introduced to included Misa Hylton-Brim, a fashion stylist, who has worked with Queen Latifah and Lil Kim, Candi Lynn, a hip-hop artist and DJ Steel, a well-known spinner from the tri-state area. I also ran into well-known locals from Harlem, such as Melba Wilson, the owner of Melba’s. Her and I were chatting it up. Melba told me she catered the entire Target celebrity event that took place July 20. That’s awesome! Good for Melba.
Aside from the fascinating people at this event, the clothes were just as interesting. H&M had the whole place completely stocked with summer and fall clothes. There is so much to choose from-whether you’re looking for clothing for young adults, teenagers or kids clothing-H&M will have it and for a low price. I asked Hylton-Brim what she thought of the retailer. “It’s a great place to shop, not only for their reasonable prices, but for their quality of clothing.”
