We don’t often associate fashion with solar power, but model and producer Jessica Minh Anh is out to change that.

The innovator who is celebrating 10 years of staging her unique vision, has previously staged shows featuring iconic backdrops including the Eiffel Tower, World Trade Centre and Grand Canyon’s Skywalk has gone solar for her latest idea.

The J Summer Fashion Show 2015 saw models walking the first-ever solar runway, in solar power plant in Gemasolar, Seville.

Paris-based Minh Anh led the procession down the futuristic runway in a dramatic red flamenco dress, followed by a collection of Spanish dresses by local designer Pilar Vera. Spanish designer based in Beijing, Paloma Sanchez provided the jewellery.

Other designs showcased included Pandora jewellery and the work of Pakistani designer Syeda Amera and Vietnam’s Hoang Hai.

The models paraded the stunning haute couture designs and ready to wear pieces surrounded by thousands of mirrors, with the plant’s central towers visible in the background.
