Tmall’s unique and strong position in Mainland China with half a billion consumers is an important complement to H&M China’s over 400 physical stores and online store. H&M launched its Tmall store in March this year and hosting H&M Super Brand Day on Tmall is the next step. During the day Chinese fashion lovers were offered special promotions in the H&M Tmall store with a campaign called #Your Day Your Way.
“Accelerating from the successful launch of the H&M Tmall flagship store in March, we are super thrilled to collaborate with Tmall and have our very first Super Brand Day within a quick six months. Ahead of the Super Brand Day we had over 4 million followers on Tmall, as we have gained on average 25,000 fans every day since the launch. China is a very important market for us and we are happy to show fashion fans our amazing collections at our first-ever fashion show in China”,
says Fredrik Olsson, Managing Director H&M.
Anita LV Jianmei, Vice President of Tmall Fashion, Alibaba Group says, “We are pleased to join the celebration of H&M’s first Tmall Super Brand Day. Since H&M flagship store launched on Tmall in March this year, we have seen the brand’s significant influence and consumers’ love for it. I hope we can further cooperate with H&M to explore new retail in the future and create a unique and premium platform for our consumers who love fashion”.
The event in Shanghai was well attended by celebrities including super model Ju Xiaowen, pop idol Wang Ziyi, singer & actress Summer and actress Rayza. Representatives from H&M and Tmall as well as nearly a thousand media, fashion influencers and special guests also attended the event, which was livestreamed on Tmall offering millions of online viewers the chance to buy the H&M Studio A/W collection straight off the catwalk.
After opening a first store in Mainland China in 2007 and introducing shop online in the country in 2014, H&M launched its flagship store on Tmall March 21, 2018.
