In November 2013, J Model Management made history with the world’s highest and most unique catwalk on the iconic Grand Canyon Skywalk in Arizona, USA. At the extreme height of 4,000 feet above the Colorado River, the show demonstrated the concept of models walking in the sky thanks to the crystal clear glass structure of the famous bridge. Showcasing exclusive fashion collections from over 10 countries, the show generated massive press coverage around the globe in ABC Channel (USA), The Telegraph (UK), WWD (USA), Marie Claire (Netherlands), The Independent (UK), KTNV (USA), Canale 5 (Italy), RTP TV (Portugal), MTV (Lebanon), Le Parisien (France), Harper’s Bazaar (Vietnam), ELLE (China), Fashion Time (Russia), Il Messaggero (Italy), Fama (Spain), and The New Paper (Singapore), Condé Nast Travel, and United Airline’s inflight magazine among many others. 
In January 2013, J Model Management partnered with the luxurious cruise line, Costa Crociere, to host the world’s first sundeck catwalk on the floating museum of contemporary Italian art, the Costa Atlantica, overlooking Dubai’s famous skyline. It was a perfect combination of European elegant taste, Asian charm, American diverse culture, and Arabic high society lifestyle. The highly anticipated catwalk was covered by CNN, CNBC, Forbes Middle East, The National, Dubai TV, Abu Dhabi TV, Fashion One TV, Sama TV, Rotana TV, Marine Biz TV, and OK! Middle East just to name a few. The exclusive guest list included countries’ ambassadors, luxury brand managers, retail group directors, and international fashion designers.
In March 2012, J Model Management became the first ever event organiser to gain the permission from PETRONAS to host an international fashion phenomenon on the 58 metre long Skybridge of the world’s tallest twin structure, the PETRONAS Twin Towers at the height of 175 metres above street level. The hotly anticipated red carpet event showcased collections from 12 countries, marking a new height in fashion. Ending the show with a bang, a cake dress was presented in front of a string of VIPs including ambassadors, ministers, international designers and top press.

J Model Management made history in October 2011 when it turned England’s iconic London Tower Bridge into the world's newest catwalk. The 61 meter long walkway, 44 metres above the River Thames, was graced by 15 exclusive collections of top designers from five continents.  J Model Management proved to the City of London that such event was possible. The show was covered by ITV, CNC, IMEDI, RTE, Drapers, etc. and attended by many influential faces besides ambassadors from 15 countries and Director of London 2012 Sponsorship and Operations, Mr Alan Williams.
J Model Management created an exceptional fashion show experience in July 2012 and again in May 2013 when it turned River Seine’s giant glass boat Le Jean Bruel into a 90 metre floating catwalk. Guests were seated facing the multi-facetted glass window while the boat was cruising to watch models walking in front of them as if they were walking on water. Thanks to a 360 degree view from the boat, architectural masterpieces such as Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Louvre, Grand Palais and 37 beautiful bridges became the natural backdrop for the phenomenal catwalk. The show presented designs from 10 countries and was covered by Vogue Italia, Le Nouvel ObservateurD-La Repubblica, Le Parisien, L’Officiel, El Comercio, TELE5, Fashion One TV, and Fashion Channel IT among many others.
