Model Jessica Minh Anh Talks About One World Trade Center & How She Pulls Off Those One-of-a-Kind Runways

Last week, Jessica Minh Anh made history again. The model and entrepreneur, known for producing outré fashion shows at some of the world’s most unconventional venues, staged her latest presentation at One World Trade Center. The building, which has been in the making for almost a decade, is not expected to open until mid-2015. Needless to say, this is the first fashion show—or any event for that matter—to be held there.

The 63rd floor of One World Trade Center was turned into an observatory for the occasion, and 10 designers from around the world showcased their couture to an audience of editors, industry insiders, dignitaries and executives. The hour-long show included pieces from fashion houses Ziad Nakad, Chula, Norka Peralta, Hay United, Puey Quiñones, Alina German, Cat Footwear, Libas Reshma, Riyaz Gangji and Cristina Sabatini.

JustLuxe took a few minutes to chat with Anh backstage. The question on everyone’s mind is, of course, “how do you pull off these shows?” Below, the model shares just how exactly she does it.
