‘Forefront of Sustainable’
“Being in the H&M Conscious Exclusive Pop-Up, curated by Conscious Commerce, is an extremely exciting moment because we are launching the H&M Conscious Exclusive collection which is at the forefront of the sustainable movement in fashion,” said Olivia Wilde. “… we thought why not pair the Conscious Exclusive Collection with brands that we at Conscious Commerce really love!”
Shoppers lined up to be the first to shop the H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection and were able to donate their clothes to H&M’s garment recycling program to receive a 20% discount and win a chance to meet Olivia Wilde, the face of the campaign.
The Conscious Pop-Up shop is comprised of a raw birch structure with sustainable metal inlays. The shop opened on April 14 and will be open through Sunday, April 19, 9 a.m. to 1 a.m.
The Conscious Exclusive Collection is available exclusively at the Times Square store and will launch globally in select stores and on hm.com today.
