“When Jessica Minh Anh puts on fashion shows around the world, she takes the ordinary and turns it into something extraordinary”. ABC New York reported after the young model and entrepreneur made history by transforming America’s new symbol of hope and freedom, One World Trade Center, into a catwalk 6 months before it was officially opened. On 23rd October 2016, Jessica Minh Anh will return to New York to host a sky-high ocean catwalk on the sundeck of AIDAluna cruise ship overlooking the city’s famous skyline. Celebrating diversity, strength, and power of modern women, the exotic beauty has handpicked 9 talented female designers to join her in the high-profile multicultural excursion. J Autumn Fashion Show 2016 is set to reshape contemporary fashion presentation and redefine a series of standards.

The highly anticipated showcase is part of series, following her iconic floating runway on the Seine River in Paris and Sydney earlier this year. J Autumn Fashion Show, which was previously held on the Grand Canyon Skywalk, London’s Tower Bridge, and the Eiffel Tower, will premier the most distinctive haute couture, jewelry, and modernized traditional wear from different continents. Every step of the preparation has been monitored to perfection as Jessica Minh Anh continues her quest to combine architecture, culture, fashion, and art. “In this edition, I focus on the unique take of women on innovative design techniques, rare colour and fabric mixture, and key factors that transition beliefs and culture. Each designer has an interesting story to tell, and an impressive collection to match. I cannot wait for the whole world to be inspired by them” said Jessica Minh Anh.

Having developed a strong relationship with international designers in her many catwalks, Jessica is bringing back Qatari powerhouse Debaj Collection, Peruvian artist Ani Alvarez Calderon, Lebanese talent Rouba.G, Polish renowned designer Teresa Rosati, Brazilian jeweler Cristina Sabatini, and Romanian pride Silvia Chiteala and Laura Cazacu of the brand Chotronette. The Vietnamese born, Russian raised, and Paris based catwalk producer will also introduce two new faces, haute couturier Zeina Halabi from Lebanon and Indonesian’s rising star Ivonne Magdalena of the label VONE. On her decision to rejoin the showcase, Ani Alvarez Calderon expressed “Jessica Minh Anh is as iconic as the catwalks she produces. Her grand vision, impeccable style, and incredible work ethic demonstrate perfection at its best.”

To compliment Jessica Minh Anh’s theatrical production, French hairstylist David Cotteblanche has exclusively designed architectural hairpieces and an unconventional updo for the edgy model lineup. Having worn symbolic hairstyles inspired by the Eiffel Tower, Burj Al Arab, Sydney Harbour Bridge, and One World Trade Center, one may wonder what will be presented this time in relation to the sea and New York. J Autumn Fashion Show 2016 is creatively supported by Fotocare, CHICSTUDIOS NYC, Red Market Salon, and Refine Method.
