Every now and again, fashion designers choose unique venues for their runway shows. In the past, Karl Lagerfeld has presented his Chanel collections at Versailles and a Scottish castle. But even Uncle Karl may not be able to top this location: the Grand Canyon.
Model and fashion show organizer Jessica Minh Anh is reportedly staging the J Autumn Fashion Show on the Grand Canyon's "Skywalk", a bridge made of glass 4,000 ft over the Grand Canyon. Press and VIPs will be seated on said glass bridge, too.
Lincoln Center what?
Minh Anh is no stranger to such venues, though, having staged fashion shows at some of the most amazing and unexpected places. In 2011 it was England's Tower Bridge, then the Petronas Twin Towers in March 2012, and recently, on a floating glass boat on the famous river Seine in Paris.
"“This time, I want to bring fashion to Eagle’s Point. The Grand Canyon is one of America’s most stunning landscapes and so I want to showcase this against cutting edge fashion. I hope that inspires people," Minh Anh said.
