AIDAluna's sun deck served as the stage for Jessica Minh Anh's 'J Autumn Fashion Show 2016' against a Manhattan backdrop Sunday.

The show was part of the model and entrepreneur's 'Ocean Catwalk,' a success also on the Seine in Paris and in Sydney. Further famous locations for the 'J Autumn Fashion Show' have included the Grand Canyon Skywalk, London's Tower Bridge and the Eiffel Tower.

Aboard AIDAluna, Minh Anh presented the Debaj Collection from Qatar, Peruvian artist Ani Alvarez Calderon, the Lebanese fashion house Rouba.G, Polish designer Teresa Rosati, Brazilian jewelry designer Cristina Sabatini and the Romanian design duo Silvia Chiteala and Laura Cazacu from the Chotronette brand.

Born in Vietnam, raised in Russia and a resident of Paris, Minh Anh also introduced two new faces: Zeina Halabi from Lebanon with her haute couture collection and the Indonesian shooting star Ivonne Magdalena from the label VONE.

The 'J Autumn Fashion Show 2016' was creatively supported by Fotocare, CHICSTUDIOS NYC, Red Market Salon and Refine Method.

Following the event AIDAluna cast off a 14-day cruise that will call at Baltimore, Charleston, Port Canaveral and Miami before heading to the Bahamas and Caribbean destinations Amber Cove, Samaná and Santo Domingo before ending at La Romana Nov. 5.
