Filipino designer Joyce Peñas Pilarsky joins international fashion show organizer and model Jessica Minh Anh to join eight other creative fashion houses from USA, UAE, France, Austria, Spain, Poland, Malaysia, and Vietnam at the international J Summer Fashion Show on July 30, 2012 on the Seine, Paris.
According to a publicity material issued by the J Model Management team, the high profile event will include a grand 60-meter catwalk on the river’s giant glass boat, Le Jean Bruel, and will cruise through Paris’ landmark sites including Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Louvre, and Grand Palais des Champs Elysees.
J Model Management, through the vision of its young director Jessica Minh Anh, had previously created international buzz with its successful and unusual shows at the Sky Bridge of Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur and the iconic Tower Bridge in England. J Model Management’s fashion event at the Petronas Towers earned the title “highest fashion show” for staging the first-ever fashion show inside the world’s tallest twin skyscrapers.
The forthcoming fashion show in Paris will have the illusion that the models are walking on water by having guests sit facing the glass windows surrounding Le Jean Bruel. The 360-degree view from the boat, an architectural masterpiece, along the Seine and the 37 extraordinary bridges that the boat will pass through will become a natural backdrop for the unusual catwalk.
Joyce Peñas Pilarksy is a Filipino designer based in Germany. She is known for her paintings, sculptures, photography, singing, and hosting besides designing beautiful garments. She was awarded “Most Outstanding Filipino Artist” in Baden Wüerttenberg, Germany. Pilarsky is known for her crystal accessories and long silk and lace dresses.

On her decision to showcase Joyce Peñas Pilarsky’s work, Jessica said “When I saw Joyce’s exquisite embroidered lace dresses in beautiful colors, I knew she would be an amazing addition to J Summer Fashion Show. Her collection shows a lot of strength, sophistication, and elegance of modern women who dare to stand out and make a difference. The smooth combination of silk and crystals in her many unique designs make each piece a must-have creation.”
Participating designers and brands will sit front row to enjoy the showcase, while the entire production from models, backstage, to PR will be well taken care of by Jessica and her experienced team of event coordinators. British fashion leader Paul Costelloe, who is a big fan of Jessica’s work, has expressed great confidence in the success of J Summer Fashion Show. “I am definitely amazed by Jessica’s creativity and determination to break international boundaries at another spectacular location. Her bold and beautiful shows redefined the modern standard” said Paul Costelloe.
The J Summer Fashion Show will start at 7:30pm on July 30 with and will have a glamorous VIP entrance before the one-hour catwalk, and end with a press conference and an exclusive two-hour VIP networking party.
