Jessica Minh Anh Lights Up New York atop One World Trade Center

We know that Jessica Minh Anh is a sensation in the world of fashion. The lovely model marked her 7th history making catwalk in New York. On the 63rd floor of One World Trade Center last Wednesday night, she walked in the runway with aplomb.

Inspired by Jessica Minh Anh’s vision, eight designers from four continents gathered to celebrate cultural integration and premier their latest fashion creations. Filipino talent Puey Quinones opened the phenomenal catwalk with an impressive Haute Couture collection which combined pale pink undertones and strong earthy palates. Russian sensation Alina German followed with 15 unique designs that showed transparency and purity of colours and textures. Bringing sparkles all the way from South America, Peruvian artist Norka Peralta showcased crystal embroidered and laced dresses. In the accessory sector, America’s very own footwear brand CAT delivered timeless classics with a contemporary twist through rich leathered designs for men and easy – to - wear heels for women. Indonesia’s representative HAY UNITED spiced up the catwalk with bold colours, preppy looks, and pop art prints for active wear.

The event was ended perfectly as Jessica showed off Ziad Nakad’s signature red dress and Brazilian designer Cristina Sabatini’s maroon and golden ring leading the models into the sunset.

How to be a Budget Savvy Fashionista

The popularity of fashion blogging became evident when many style enthusiasts joined the bandwagon of sharing hauls, shopping ideas and beauty tips. With the presence of budget savvy fashion lovers, the curiosity of many people heightened to a higher degree. The fashion world became an interesting avenue of learning the best ways to look stylish all the time.

Here are useful tips to become a budget savvy fashion lover.

1. Create a look book.

It's easy to create your own look book. Determine your style to know the clothes that you should buy. If you like feminine-looking pieces, choose dresses made of lace and adorned with little ribbons. If you prefer sleek and modern look, try clothes with geometric prints and patterns. Based on your style, find photos of models online and assemble a look book. It will serve as your shopping guide.

I found this amazing look book online. I got a wonderful idea for purple and white combination.

2. Keep a list of your favorite shopping districts.

Why is it necessary to keep a list of your favorite shops? It will help you save time and money. In that way, you already know where to go and what to buy before shopping. Don't forget to include in the list some garage sale schedule and online shopping stores.

3. Always visit thrift stores.

One of my favorite hangout areas is a thrift store. It's interesting to find unique pieces in second-hand stores because donations comes from different sources. By purchasing a unique and stylish piece, I can have opportunities to create clothes based on the design of the item. Since the pieces are discounted, I can buy more than I planned to acquire every time I enjoy shopping.

4. Be adventurous in shopping for your favorite items.

If you're adventurous, shopping on a budget is really fun. As you go on retail therapy, bring a friend along with you. Since your friend will give instant feedback on what item that you should buy, you'll save time and money while shopping. It's an adventure that will benefit you both so enjoy shopping with a fellow style lover.
