First on our itinerary for the NYC trip was to visit the Express design studio. While it's not my favorite retailer, the experience was definitely worth it. We got to preview the Holiday 2009 collections, and see the beginning stages of color palettes, mood boards, and fabric swatches for Spring/Summer 2010. The studio itself was really cool, as soon as you walk in the glass doors you face the bright red wall with the EXPRESS logo on in. The rest of the place is all white with wood floors and chrome trims. I'll post more NYC photos later =)

edit: I apologize for my lack of photo-taking abilities. It's quite hard to snap photos when you're crammed in a small space with about 50 other fashion students.
