Last week at the red carpet for the CFDA Awards, Alexander Wang appeared together wit German topmodel Anna Ewers at his side. Anna looked stunning (as always), wearing an eye-catching mini dress, which was created out of 500 American Express Gold cards.

“I love innovative techniques such as bonding, welding and other treatments that feel really modern and can entirely change the make of a garment,” Alexander said about his creation.

“We were exploring the concept of re-purposing iconic items, and the idea of the American Express card came up. I was fascinated with the idea of using the iconic Gold card as a starting point for a dress, and altering the shape and texture of the card into a fluid surface, similar to the chain mail that we used in our Fall 2015 collection,” The desingner added.
