Express: #ExpressU Collegiate Program

Express, the style source for fashion-forward young women and men, wanted to help prepare college students across the country for “what’s next,” whether that’s in their day or in their life.

Situation YMC recruited a group of influential, fashion-forward student brand ambassadors to authentically represent the brand and generate buzz around the collegiate-focused #ExpressU program. The goal of this program was to positively change perception and increase purchase consideration among Millennials and Gen-Z.
