World’s first solar power catwalk

Jessica Minh Anh to mark her 10th history-making catwalk at Gemasolar in Spain

Press Release
May 11, 2015

PARIS – Jessica Minh Anh will mark her 10th history-making production by transforming the award-winning solar power plant, Gemasolar in Seville, Spain, into the world’s most innovative catwalk on 17 July 2015. The highly anticipated J Summer Fashion Show will set a new standard for modern fashion presentation by not only promoting the most exquisite designs from 5 continents, but also the best of advanced technology and environment preservation.

Pushing the visual envelope, the model and entrepreneur will stage the unique catwalk right in the middle of Gemasolar, with the cinematic backdrop of the famous central tower and thousands of cutting-edge shining mirrors. The 100-meter catwalk will be filmed from various angles, using the latest drone technology from above to highlight the sunlight’s effect on the stunning circle-shaped power plant.

"It is an honor to host Jessica Minh Anh’s Summer Fashion Show at Gemasolar and to be included in her series of fashion events at the world’s most iconic venues,” said Raul Mendoza Ruiz, Gemasolar Plant Manager, Torresol Energy. “Gemasolar is an international symbol of the next generation of power plants and represents the future, just as Jessica does in fashion. We look forward to fascinating the world with a mixture of high technology and high fashion in this particular project.”

Similar to Jessica Minh Anh’s previous fashion phenomena, J Summer Fashion Show 2015 will premiere a combination of haute couture and high end ready-to-wear collections from over 15 countries. The carefully selected fashion houses embrace tradition and culture whilst experimenting with innovative techniques of modern design. Jessica has worked with famous names such as Paul Costelloe, Addy van den Krommenacker, Tony Ward, Shiatzy Chen, Yumi Katsura, Montblanc, Buccelatti, Van Cleef & Arpels, and Ivanka Trump Jewelry among many others.

Jessica Minh Anh, who “combines art, architecture, culture, and fashion in her extraordinary catwalks” (ABC New York), can now add technology in her list. Representing the new generation of creative leaders, the IT graduate has more passion for the high-tech world than one might have guessed. “Gemasolar took my breath away. It represents a rare modern beauty, which sees the best of designs and sustainability efforts in one place. I would consider this show my most challenging yet exciting project so far,” said Jessica Minh Anh.

J Summer Fashion Show 2015 will welcome influential faces from various industries, international designers, country ambassadors and ministers, and international press. Having witnessed Jessica Minh Anh’s many catwalks around the world, ELLE Italia fashion editor Giulia Pacella said, “Jessica had models walking in the sky (Grand Canyon Skywalk), atop the iconic Eiffel Tower, and on water (Hudson River). I have no doubt this show will be yet another mind-blowing success.”

The official pre-show photo and video shoot will take place on 13 June 2015 at Gemasolar. For more information, visit
