A fashion designer from Bangladesh, Asma Sultana, popularly known as Sultana A, will participate in supermodel Jessica Minh Anh’s upcoming fashion show, titled ‘Catwalk on Water’, scheduled to be held in Paris on September 4, says a press release.
Asma’s fashion house Zoan Ash, which was founded in 2015, will showcase an impressive new collection alongside an all-female designer lineup from Europe, North America, Asia, and South America.
Jessica Minh Anh will use a giant multifaceted glass boat and clever seating arrangements to create an illusion of models walking on the Seine River. Paris’ architectural wonders and its 37 bridges will become the natural backdrop for the floating catwalk.
Models will hit the runway wearing Asma Sultana’s luxurious new collections made using rich fabrics, special colour combinations, intricate embroidery and embellishments.
The collections—focusing on timeless beauty and inner strength—will artistically bring out the warrior princess image.
About her decision to showcase Asma Sultana’s collection, Jessica Minh Anh said ‘Zoan Ash’s dresses are alluring, captivating, and very intriguing. I’m particularly drawn to her modern take of classic silhouettes that perfectly accentuate a woman’s body. Every piece is a work of art heavily influenced by modern craftsmanship. It compliments women’s beauty while showing off their individuality. I cannot think of a better representative from Bangladesh and South Asia in this show’.
Other participating designers include Peruvian haute couturier Ani Alvarez Calderon, UAE fashion house Atelier-Zuhra, French luxury jewellery brand De Galluchat, Japanese Yumi Katsura, American newcomer Nuriyah and Vietnamese famous ready-to-wear brand Cocosin.
Jessica’s previous Autumn editions took place on the Eiffel Tower, Grand Canyon Skywalk, and London’s Tower Bridge.
It is Jessica Minh Anh’s final fashion show in 2018 before she heads to Hollywood for a special TV project.
