Express took things to the next level with a special 30th anniversary show at the New York Stock Exchange. The fast fashion brand, enlisted the help of ubermodels Alek Wek, Izabel Goulart and David Agbodji for the unique show which blended the grandiosity of a fashion week event with the excitement of a live concert. Crowds of people turned out during their lunch breaks to watch models strut their stuff in the company’s latest wares and the combination of fashion and commerce was the perfect way to celebrate Express going public.

Watching the show, the evolution of the brand was very clear; the look was modern, trendy and very youthful; completely in line with the consumer Express attracts. Sexy shapes and sequins dominated for the girls, while relaxed denim looks were worn by the guys. Judging from the enthusiastic crowd reactions the line is certainly on the right track. MDC took in the full show and caught up with the guys and girls backstage to get a taste of all the Express action.

    Por favor no pongan a Alek Wek como modelo nos hace sentir mal, es guapa es alta, es joven y sobre todo super delgadaaaaaaaaaaa es hermosa asi no dan ganas de comprar la ropa porq uno quiere lucir como ella ahhhhhhh!!!! Por q la contrato Banana Republic, ya no quiero comprar nada porq siento que luzco mal, porq esta tan hermosa esta mujer buaaaaaaaaaaaaaa lloro por ello. Pongan gente normal ella no es de este planeta, yo soy rubia pero tengo unas caderas enormes desde niña y nunca encuentro ropa que me haga ver tan bien como a ella.

    Lucho is with Contempo in Mexico… surprising to see they got him out of there! But his face was definetly too much for the Mexican fashion industry.
