As true lovers of style, our obsession doesn’t end with what’s trending this summer or who our favorite street style star was during fashion week. Our passion extends to stylish cars, homes, yachts, shoes and yes, even runways—but we’re not talking about Chanel’s swanky grocery store setup. One of our favorite entrepreneurial models Jessica Minh Anh, has just announced the location of her next history-making catwalk—the Eiffel Tower. Suddenly Chanel’s shopping center seems a bit boring, no? While not the first runway show in the famed Parisian landmark, this show may just take the title of the most extravagant due to Anh’s over-the-top shows and choice of international designers.
The fall show, which will take place on October 31, 2014, will see the transformation of the first floor of the tower into an approximately 492 foot long outdoor catwalk. Currently in design, the runway itself is expected to be multi-level, and include “various angles of the symbolic tower and present Paris at its best.” While a fully finalized press release won’t be available until September, designers from England, France, Italy, India, Saudi Arabia, Canada, Bahrain, Vietnam, South Africa, Japan and the U.S. are expected to present this season.
“I am truly honored to be entrusted with such a magnificent location. The Eiffel Tower represents the magic of lights and inspires dreams. I cannot wait to turn those dreams into reality,” said Anh. In addition to the Eiffel Tower, Anh has held international catwalks on London’s Tower Bridge, PETRONAS Twin Towers’ Skybridge, Singapore Gardens by the Bay’s Skyway, One World Trade Center, the Grand Canyon Skywalk, Costa Atlantica’s sundeck in Dubai and the Seine in Paris.
