Fashion model Gigi Hadid recently collaborated with Tommy Hilfiger to create a new casual clothing line for the Spring and Summer of 2017. Now hitting stores in Paris, fans were seen lined up outside of the Tommy Hilfiger Paris flagship store to make purchases and for a meet-and-greet, causing much traffic. Hadid is on her second international tour celebrating her ongoing Tommy x Gigi line.
According to E! News, as Hadid went into the store, she greeted her French fans before being brought upstairs to meet fans one by one. “The day after the show we were told the tour was sold out, but to actually see the people’s faces, the fans wearing the collection, it’s amazing,” she said.
“My first experience as a designer is seeing how people can take your pieces and be inspired by them. Each part of the world puts their own spin. In Japan, they took it to a whole other level.”
Hadid has just recently visited Disneyland Paris with her boyfriend Zayn Malik and sister Bella, she felt determined to make the event a special one for her fans who had obtained meet-and-greet passes. “They’re here to be supportive and make me feel welcome, so I try to make it as special and personal as possible,” she commented.
