Beijing brand Paloma Sanchez will join Jessica Minh Anh’s 10th history-making catwalk at Gemasolar in Spain

Jessica Minh Anh is no stranger to extraordinary catwalks at the most iconic venues. On 17 July 2015, the model and entrepreneur will mark her 10th history-making production right in the middle of the award-winning solar power plant Gemasolar in Seville, Spain. Jessica has exclusively selected Bejing-based jewellery brand Paloma Sanchez to represent China in the phenomenon. 

Unlike Jessica Minh Anh’s previous fashion successes on the Eiffel Tower, London’s Tower Bridge, Grand Canyon Skywalk, and One World Trade Center, J Summer Fashion Show 2015 will not only showcase a combination of art, architecture, culture, and fashion, but it will also celebrate the best of advanced technology and environmental preservation. With the cinematic backdrop of the famous central tower and thousands of cutting-edge mirrors, the sunshine catwalk is expected to redefine modern fashion standards. 

Beijing-based Spanish designer Paloma Sanchez, who has traveled the world to search for the most precious stones, will showcase a luxurious and colorful collection. The talented jeweler is heavily influenced by the Chinese culture and its devotion to perfection. Paloma treasures the beauty of uncut stones and their one-of-a-kind formation to tell a story and create the ultimate Art. Talking about her decision to premier the latest collection by Paloma Sanchez, Jessica Minh Anh said, “I am captivated by Paloma Sanchez’s outstanding and unique designs. She has mastered the art of marrying Oriental charm and European sophistication. She makes all women feel like royalty”. 

Besides Paloma Sanchez, J Summer Fashion Show 2015 will premiere another 5 exclusive fashion and jewellery collections from Europe and Asia. Focusing on the art of minimalism, Turkish jewellery brand EKRIA will present a highly futuristic laser-cut collection in gold and silver. Returning to Jessica Minh Anh’s unique catwalk, Pakistani Haute Couture designer Syeda Amera will continue her creative approach with sequinned formations, golden embellishments, bold cuts, and abstract patterns. Adding a Spanish touch to the grand showcase, Seville’s very own designer Pilar Vera will introduce some of the most vibrant, dramatic, and especially romantic flamenco dresses. The youthful collection pays homage to textile crafts, traditional sewing techniques, and floral prints with an emphasis on sensual silhouettes. “Jessica Minh Anh embodies fluid movements, class, and elegance which resonate with my collection. I look forward to her leading other models down the catwalk in my signature multi-layered doll-like red dress,” said Pilar Vera. 

Closing the show with luxury and glamour, Vietnamese celebrity designer Hoang Hai will premiere an alluring collection made from the finest materials, decorated with lace, brocade, Italian tulle, and Swarovski crystals. The extravagant Haute Couture dresses are quintessential examples of advanced beadwork, original patterns, and intricate transparency. The highly anticipated finale dress, which is inspired by the exotic beauty of Jessica Minh Anh, is his greatest masterpiece to date. The mesmerising collection will be accompanied by customised jewellery pieces from Danish brand Pandora. The exclusively designed collection of gold, cubic zirconia, white enamel, and red Murano glass will add even more sparkle to the shining catwalk. 

To compliment Jessica Minh Anh’s creative vision, J Summer Fashion Show 2015 will be filmed using the latest drone technology. This will allow the sun’s effect on the engineering marvel and the exquisite fashion collections to be artistically highlighted. 

“It is an honour for Torresol Energy to have Jessica Minh Anh transform Gemasolar into the first ever solar powered catwalk,” said Raul Mendoza Ruiz, Gemasolar Plant Manager, Torresol Energy. “Gemasolar is part of the next generation of power plants and represents the future, just as Jessica does in fashion. We find it very meaningful that Jessica has chosen such an ecological scenario for the show. It speaks about her belief in green power.” 

Having the most daring ideas and an excellent track record to match, Jessica Minh Anh has quickly become a worthy representative of a new generation of creative leaders. With the participation of Paloma Sanchez and other talents, Jessica Minh Anh will give the world the first look into the future of modern fashion presentation.
