NYFW: Heidi Klum, Gabriel Aubry Celebrate INC's 30th Birthday
30 has never looked so good.
Despite the gloomy weather on Thursday evening, there was much to celebrate at New York Fashion Week — specifically, the 30th anniversary of INC International Concepts, the clothing label sold exclusively at Macy's.
The fashion brand's campaign stars, Heidi Klum and Gabriel Aubry, welcomed the evening's guests — Christina Milian, Karolina Kurkova, Justine Skye and models Candice Huffine and Shaun Ross included — to the IAC building to check out a digital runway show and live presentation of the men's and women's capsule collection designed in honor of the label's birthday.

Since hitting the 30-year mark is no easy feat, Klum expressed that INC has been able to keep up its success because of its ability to "bring the runway to the streets for everyone to wear. Not everyone can pick up an outfit from the runway and be able to afford it. Also it doesn't work for everyone. I think they find the greatest trends and they make them for your everyday life."
The affordable limited-edition pieces, available at Macy's stores this month, include a faux-leather dress ($119.50), fringe ponchos ($99.50 to $119.50), faux-fur vest ($189.50) and high-waist slim flare pants for the ladies ($79.50). The men's collection offers a slim-fit blazer with zipper detailing ($149.50), sleek fitted suits and suit separates ($14.99 to $149.50) and short-sleeved dress shirts with faux-leather accented pockets ($49.50).
Klum, in an INC hip-hugging faux-leather frock, may have celebrated her 30th birthday 12 years ago (she turned 42 on June 1) — though she hardly looks that way — the best thing she learned after hitting the big 3-0 was, "Don't change a thing." And by the looks of both Klum and INC's success, we couldn't agree more.
