Saudi designer joins 'catwalk on the river' in Paris.


LONDON: A Saudi Arabian designer is participating in the highly anticipated 100-meter floating catwalk on the Seine River in Paris on Oct. 29, 2015. J Autumn Fashion Show 2015 is part of Jessica Minh Anh's series of unconventional catwalks at the world's most iconic venues including the Eiffel Tower, Grand Canyon Skywalk, London's Tower Bridge, PETRONAS Twin Towers' Skybridge, and One World Trade Center among many others. After the phenomenal success of the Eiffel Tower's first ever catwalk, Jessica Minh Anh is back in the fashion capital to transform the Seine's giant glass boat into a 100 meter floating catwalk. The model and entrepreneur has handpicked designer Ot Kutyr Atulier to represent Saudi Arabia in the highly anticipated J Autumn Fashion Show. To create an illusion of models walking on water, Jessica will have guests seated facing the multi-faceted glass windows while the boat is cruising. As a result, Paris architectural wonders such as the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the Louvre, and the 37 famous bridges will become the natural backdrop for the unique catwalk. When talking about selecting Ot Kutyr Atulier for the show, Jessica Minh Anh said "I am attracted with the beautiful lightness created by Ot Kutyr Atulier using monotone colors and shear fabrics. The brand certainly knows how to accentuate beauty." Fascinated with mysticism, numerology and geometry, designer Samar Nsraldin has successfully conceptualized each piece in third dimensional form while making the most of French hand sewing techniques. Ot Kutyr Atulier is bringing a simplistic yet elegant collection to the grand catwalk. Similar to Jessica Minh Anh's previous theatrical catwalks, J Autumn Fashion Show 2015 will combine of art, architecture, culture, and fashion. Besides Ot Kutyr Atulier, the grand event will also include Lebanese Haute Couture label Rouba.G, Peruvian artist Ani Alvarez Caldern, Turkish talent G'lnur G'ne, 5.8.0 creative studio from Hong Kong and Kiwi heritage brand Iwi Creations.
