On October 23, model and entrepreneur Jessica Minh Anh will host a sky-high ocean catwalk on the sundeck of AIDAluna while the ship is in New York City at Pier 88.
Felix Eichhorn, AIDA's president, said "AIDA operates the world's most state-of-the-art fleet and represents premium quality, creativity, and the future, just as Jessica Minh Anh does in fashion. We are honoured to host her upcoming phenomenon onboard of AIDAluna".
In 2009, international top model Franziska Knuppe assumed the role of godmother for the ship and has since returned many times to relax on board with her family.
The showcase is part of Jessica Minh Anh's 2016 "catwalk on water" series, following her 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 Minh Anh.
