Mega Fashion Hall: home of the global fashion brand is now open in SM Megamall–launch coverage and store photos

January 28, 2014 is the official launch and opening of the new wing of SM Megamall, also dubbed as the Mega bldg D that sit next to Mega bldg B of SM Megamall. it’s a 86,000 square meter hedge shaped atrium that houses new global fashion stores, restaurants and IMAX Theater, Bowling center and also bringing back the 1st ever ice skating rink in SM Megamall, now with a Olympic size set up.

I’ve seen this new wing of SM Megamall last December 2013 and the size is huge and it covers up to the 5th floor, but I’m not sure if there’s a basement area with stores too. And because of the new expansion of SM Megamall, they are now awarded as the BIGGEST shopping mall in the Philippines in terms of floor area, now the 2nd biggest mall is the SM North EDSA and third is SM Mall of Asia.

Here’s the front entrance look of Mega Fashion Hall, much more near to EDSA
