The high-profile event will welcome the global media and exclusive VIPs on board Costa Toscana, a new age “smart city at sea”, before its inaugural cruise in Portofino, Italy. Participating brands, which will be unveiled in mid-February 2022, will premiere a combination of haute couture and ready-to-wear collections from five continents. Jessica’s previous catwalks included Paul Costelloe, Montblanc, Yumi Katsura, Ziad Nakad, Shiatzy Chen, and Tony Ward. The red-carpet experience will feature the best in Italian art, architecture, culture, luxury and delicacies alongside the impressive catwalk.

This particular moment in history provides an opportunity for a sustainable “restart” of our society. Costa Toscana aligns perfectly with my mission of highlighting sustainability in a visually attractive way. It runs by Liquefied Natural Gas, one of the most advanced technologies to reduce emissions right now. It represents a breakthrough in the travel industry. I am honored to celebrate the resurgence of business and style on such a unique ship.” said Jessica Minh Anh.

J Spring Fashion Show 2022 is Jessica Minh Anh’s come-back catwalk after the phenomenal success of “Runway on the Runway” at JFK international airport before the pandemic, where the supermodel turned entrepreneur promoted the globally sustainable supply chain. This show will combine three of Jessica’s famous catwalk series, namely Fashion x Sustainability, Catwalk-On-Water, and Sky-High, into one mind-blowing extravaganza. Previous editions took place atop the Eiffel Tower, London’s Tower Bridge, Grand Canyon Skywalk, Hoover Dam, Gemasolar Power Plant, and international cruise ships in Dubai, New York, Sydney, and Hong Kong.

A Modern Day Fashion Pioneer

“Jessica Minh Anh is a pioneer in marrying fashion with sustainability, just like Costa Cruises in offering the most advanced sustainable ships”, said Mario Zanetti, President of Costa Cruises. “Costa has been the first in the world to operate LNG-powered ships, and focuses on value-driven, sustainable and inclusive tourism.  As the travel industry is gradually recovering, it is very exciting for us to welcome Jessica on board, and have her launch such an important message in a creative way on our new flagship, Costa Toscana. We are also proud that this collaboration will happen in Italy and specifically the Ligurian Riviera!

Costa Toscana

Costa Toscana is the new flagship of Costa Cruises, departing on her first cruise on March 5, 2022, from Savona, with a week-long itinerary in the Western Mediterranean. She has been designed to be a real travelling “smart city”, where sustainable solutions and circular economy concepts are applied to reduce environmental impact. Thanks to the use of liquefied natural gas – the most advanced technology for emissions reduction currently available in the maritime sector introduced by Costa as the first company in the world on 4 of its new ships – it will be possible to almost eliminate the emission of sulfur oxides (zero emissions) and particulate matter (95-100% reduction) into the atmosphere, while also significantly lowering nitrogen oxide (direct reduction of 85%) and CO2 (up to 20%) emissions.

Costa Toscana is a tribute to Tuscany, it is the result of an extraordinary creative project, curated by Adam D. Tihany, to enhance and bring to life in a single location the best of this wonderful Italian region, which gives its name to the ship, its decks, and main public areas. In order to create an authentically “Made in Italy” design experience, Costa Toscana’s furniture, lighting, fabrics and accessories have been chosen in collaboration with prestigious Italian companies, such as Molteni&C, Roda, Flos, Dedar, Rubelli, Kartell, Poltrona Frau and Alessi.

The gastronomic offer onboard is truly incredible, with no less than 21 restaurants and areas dedicated to gastronomy. The new Archipelago restaurant gives guests a unique culinary experience, with menus created by three of the world’s finest chefs: Bruno Barbieri, Hélène Darroze and Ángel León. The driftwood used as decorative elements of the restaurant design has been collected thanks to the “Guardians of the Coast”, the environmental education program for the protection of the Italian coastline promoted by the Costa Crociere Foundation. For every dinner served at Archipelago, Costa Cruises will donate part of the proceeds to the Costa Cruises Foundation to support environmental and social projects.
