After her excellent academic achievements in her Bachelor Degree in IT in Malaysia and her Master Degree in Marketing Communications in England, she decided to make full use of her potentials in PR and event execution to open J Model Management, which is now UK’s leading high profile fashion event organiser. Breaking international boundaries, she is a representative of the new talented generation of the bold and beautiful.

Jessica Minh Anh on Drapers Magazine, November 2011“I think our competitive advantage is that we focus on exclusive international collections showcased in the most spectacular venues. We are always the first to do something new!” said Jessica. Supported by top names in the industry like British fashion leader Paul Costelloe, Dutch celebrity designer Addy van den Krommenacker, and New York fashion week designer Charlotte Sparre among many others, Jessica has rapidly become a familiar face in the UK’s fashion industry, seating front row at various London Fashion Week shows. She was also a judge at Miss England national grand final in 2010 and the UK delegate for Euro Doc conference in Switzerland in 2009. Her social network includes not only top designers, models, artists, and stylists worldwide but also ambassadors of different countries, directors of the Olympics London 2012, and member of British parliaments.

She always showed us there was a solution to every problem and guided us through our tasks with grace and patience. We all love her very much” said Aston University student Anastasia Iordan.
