Affordable Fashion: H&M

Affordable fashion is brilliant. These days, it doesn't take a million bucks to look like a million bucks. A leader in the modern, affordable fashion movement is H&M, which carries trendy clothes at lower prices. One way many stores are bringing high fashion clothes to lower prices is through partnerships with designer brands. H&M's most recent partnership with Versace (click here to view collection) has resulted in clothing more expensive than most of H&M's usual pieces. But, for designer clothing it is relatively inexpensive.
Compare this Versace jacket (available at for $3,395

to this Versace for H&M jacket (available at for $299.

the Versace jacket costs much more than the Versace for H&M jacket, it is better quality, but is it worth $3096 more? I suppose thats a matter of opinion. But in comparison, the Versace for H&M is a pretty good deal.

My favorites from the Versace for H&M collection...

Affordable fashion is changing the industry and it benefits the producer, the consumer, and the vendor.
