H&M Stages Largest Fashion Show in Central Park History

NEW YORK, April 20/PRNewswire/ --

Musical Performance by Grammy Award Winning Superstar Kanye West

WHAT: International brand, H&M, will host an unprecedented evening of
fashion and music in celebration of their Fall '05 men's and
women's collections. New York's Central Park will be
transformed into a 15,000-square-foot, four-story complex of
tents with 800 guests arriving through a 16-foot curtain of
orchids. The fashion show -- thought to be the largest ever in
New York -- will feature 150 models, intersecting runways and
surrounding video screens, making for three shows in one.

Kanye West, one of the big winners at this year's Grammy
Awards, winning three awards in total, will perform along with
international musicians -- pianist John Legend and hip hop
violinist Miri Ben-Ari. Guests at the event include figures
from the fashion, film, music, art and media worlds, as well as
a cross-section of New York style-setters, including
John Legend, Fergie (Black Eyed Peas), Mariska Hargitay,
Catalina Sandino Moreno, Helena Christensen, Piper Perabo,
Mario Vasquez (American Idol), Patricia Field, Tory Burch
(designer) and more!

MORE: H&M's fashionable clothing mixes of-the-moment trends with
modern wardrobe basics. Founded in Sweden in 1947, today the
women's, men's, kids, teens and accessories collections are
sold in almost 1,000 stores worldwide, with a significant and
expanding presence in the US and Canada. At its core, H&M is
devoted to being a source of fun and progressive fashion: the
recent, highly successful limited-edition collection designed
by Karl Lagerfeld marked the first such collaboration for the
company.
