Fashion retailer H&M has confirmed that its collection supporting the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community is not available in Malaysia. Malaysiakini reported Sweden-based H&M’s Malaysia & Singapore communications manager Abby Wee as saying the brand is present in 72 markets globally, and as such it has been left to each local market to decide on the collections to be carried. “With multiple collections launching each season, it is up to each local market to decide on what collections to carry,” Wee was quoted saying. In a previous statement, H&M’s global marketing and communications director Sara Spännar said the “Love For All” capsule collection will be available only in certain stores around the world throughout the month of May.
