International fashion giant, H&M, has confirmed it will launch its iconic brand for the first time in our nation’s capital at Canberra Centre.

“We’re thrilled to welcome H&M to Canberra Centre, which will open later in 2017,” Canberra Centre Centre Manager Amanda Paradiso says.

“The arrival of this powerhouse international brand represents another chapter in the evolution of Canberra Centre and the CBD – testimony to the centre’s ability to attract globally recognised brands and new to market retailers.

“The arrival of H&M further demonstrates our commitment to evolving Canberra Centre to ensure it continues to meet the needs of our vibrant community.”

Drawing more than 17.5 million customer visits a year, Canberra Centre is the capital’s nexus for fashion, dining, experience and now beauty and wellness, showcasing the world’s finest brands alongside Australia’s emerging talents.

H&M joins other Canberra-first brands recently opened at the centre such as Mecca Maxima, Jurlique, Perfect Potion, Inglot, 3ina and Eden Laser Clinics.
