Haute Event: Express Rocked the Sidewalk at The Venetian

The Venetian hosted one of the Strip’s biggest fashion events on Friday when Express brought its “Rock the Sidewalk” Runway Show to the resort. Onlookers lined the runway to preview 2011 fall fashions from Express as models strutted the 70-foot catwalk specially built on the outdoor gondola bridge along the Strip. While most front row seats at fashion shows are limited strictly to celebrities and fashion insiders, this show gave the public a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the latest fashion trends up close and personal.

Following successful shows in New York and Miami, Express came to Vegas and chose the Venetian with its outdoor gondola bridges providing the perfect backdrop for their next event. After shooting the fall advertising campaign amid the Venetian’s signature landmarks, models rocked the sidewalk wearing trendy sequins, blazers and loads of layered jewelry.

Eyesight Productions, known for their world-class fashion productions in Paris and New York, brought the colossal stage to life over two days with strobe lights and a huge LED screen that projected the show live online. Tao Nightclub‘s DJ Galeano pumped the crowd up with dance music and announced the 10 lucky winners who won gift cards to Express, Tao Nightclub and Canyon Ranch SpaClub.

The celebration continued with an after party at Tao Nightclub.
