Fashion Forward on Fifth Avenue

There are over 100 locations of H&M in the US but the first one opened on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue at 51st Street in 2000. Fifth Avenue was a fitting location for the store which has locations on other world-famous shopping streets such as Corso Vittorio Emanuele in Milan, Regent Street in London and Ginza in Tokyo.

H&M is known for its collaboration with high end designers who create affordable lines that are carried in select H&M stores. The flagship H&M in Manhattan has been host to many hotly anticipated launches including the Lanvin line with partywear by designer Alber Elbaz.
