Paris, Oct 8 (IANS) After the Eiffel Tower’s first ever catwalk, fashion show producer and model Jessica Minh Anh will transform Seine river’s giant glass boat into a 100-meter floating catwalk on October 29.
To create an illusion of models walking on water, Minh Anh will have guests seated facing the multi-faceted glass windows while the boat is cruising, giving a full view of the city’s architectural wonders such as the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the Louvre and the 37 famous bridges as natural backdrop for the unique catwalk.
“We are extremely honored to work with Jessica Minh Anh on this special project. We have been admiring her iconic productions at places such as the Grand Canyon Skywalk, Hudson River, London’s Tower Bridge, and One World Trade Center for years. It is a privilege to have our venue added in Jessica’s famous series of unconventional catwalks,” Marco Goncalvez, operation manager of Compagnie des Bateaux Mouches, said in a statement.
The Autumn Fashion Show 2015 here will be a combination of art, architecture, culture and fashion.
The brand labels participating in the show will be Lebanese haute couture designer Rouba.G, Turkish talent Gülnur Günes, Saudi Arabian fashion house Ot Kutyr Atulier, Peruvian artist Ani Álvarez Calderón, Kiwi heritage brand Iwi Creations and 5.8.0 creative studio from Hong Kong.
