Global fashion show organizer and model Jessica Minh Anh has teamed with Lebanese fashion house Robert Abi Nader to represent Haute Couture from the Middle East at the highly anticipated J Spring Fashion Show on the famous River Seine in Paris on 30 May 2013. The exclusive VIP and press event is part of Jessica’s series of unique catwalks at the most extraordinary venues worldwide following the grand success on London Tower Bridge, PETRONAS Twin Towers’ Skybridge, and Costa Atlantica in Dubai. Robert Abi Nader’s latest collection will be showcased on a 90 metre floating catwalk on the Seine’s giant glass boat Le Jean Bruel with the natural backdrop being architectural wonders such as the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the Louvre. Guests will be seated facing the multi-facetted glass window while the boat is cruising to watch models walking in front of them as if they are walking on water.
“I am completely mesmerised by Robert’s designs which reflect a captivating fusion of material and colours. He definitely knows how to dress a confident woman,” said Jessica Minh Anh. Striking an almost unattainable balance between two contradictory states of whimsicality and boldness, the thirty-five new Haute Couture dresses by Robert Abi Nader are expected to dazzle the world in the fashion capital.
Other participating brands include Japanese power house Yumi Katsura, Spanish sensation Katarina Grey, Italian chic Silvian Heach, Nigeria’s top designer Mai Atafo, English luxury leather brand Black Rose Collection and bridal house Elite Sposa UK, UAE’s celebrity designer Aiisha Ramadan, Vietnamese pride Ha Linh Thu, Peruvian Haute Couture designer Carlos Vigil, and Paris’ very own talent Reine Rosalie. Toni & Guy France and Make Up For Ever Academy Paris are jumping on board to create the show’s signature looks, which are described as elegant, bold, and intriguing.
Similar to Jessica’s previous international success, J Spring Fashion Show will include a VIP red carpet entrance, a grand catwalk with only front row VIPs, a press conference, and a VIP networking party where drinks and canapés will be served. The exclusive VIP ONLY guest list consists of country ministers and ambassadors, luxury brand leaders, retail group directors, department stores and boutique buyers, international fashion leaders, and national and international press.
Parisian can also take a glance at some of the most unique pieces from the catwalk at the mini exhibition between 1 and 15 June 2013 at Renaissance Paris Arc de Triomphe, the Official Hotel Partner of J Spring Fashion Show.
From the world’s highest fashion show on PETRONAS Twin Towers’ Skybridge in Kuala Lumpur to a narrow runway on England’s iconic London Tower Bridge, Jessica Minh Anh has undoubtedly maintained her reputation as one of the most desirable fashion show organisers. With the company of talented designers including Robert Abi Nader, it is time she shows Paris what it’s still missing.
