Jessica Anh to transform 'One WTC' into sky-high catwalk
May '14
Global fashion sensation Jessica Minh Anh is set to turn America’s tallest building, One World Trade Center in New York City, into a multicultural style destination on 25 June 2014. The highly anticipated J Summer Fashion Show will be the first ever catwalk in the most iconic architectural marvel in the Western Hemisphere and will be set to make history before the building is even officially opened, signalling Jessica’s sixth history making showcase around the world in just three years.
The young model turned entrepreneur will stage the high profile catwalk on the 63rd floor at sunset. Thanks to the crystal clear glass panels that surround the tower, New York’s famous skyline will become the natural backdrop to the phenomenal showcase.
Combining beauty and cultures from across the globe in this world renowned location, Jessica’s Summer Fashion Show 2014 will bring together an exquisite combination of Haute Couture, high end Ready-to-Wear and active wear collections from 10 countries over 4 continents.
“The variety of styles and cultures is what makes the show dynamic and intriguing, and One World Trade Center is the perfect place to bring these together. You will see a creative mix of simplicity and sophistication in some collections as well as a dramatic flair with a burst of colours and textures in others,” said Jessica Minh Anh. “But it’s more than that for me - I hope to channel the values of hope, cultural integration and reflectiveness that this tower represents.”
Designers from across the world have created their pieces especially for this historically significant location. It has been confirmed that J Summer Fashion Show 2014 will include Jessica’s favourite designer Ziad Nakad. The Lebanese Haute Couture designer will bring class and femininity to the grand catwalk with the message of cultural integration.
Indian power house Libas Riyaz and Reshma Gangji have created an exclusive line for the One World Trade Center catwalk which portraits strength, appreciation, and peace using bold colors and traditional materials. Joining them is Peru’s top fashion designer and public figure Norka Peralta, whose timeless designs mirror women’s endurance and individuality. 
Another designer whose collection is inspired by the venue and American culture is Spanish innovative brand Chula. South East Asian representative HAY UNITED from Indonesia is ready to spice up the catwalk with a chic and youthful collection to promote a bright tomorrow. Jessica Minh Anh will reveal the rest of participating designers from five other countries including the United States closer to the show. The young director of J Model Management has previously worked with sought after designers such as British fashion leader Paul Costelloe, Japanese luxury brand Yumi Katsura,Dutch celebrity designer Addy van den Krommnacker, and Taiwanese fashion sensation Shiatzy Chen among many others.
