In honor of a friends upcoming trip to Peru and Machu Picchu I am dedicating this weeks blog to Peruvian Fashion. More than anything, I was just curious. But, then I started reading about it and found it quite fascinating.

When people think of Peru, they think of many things, including Machu Pichhu, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, but fashion? I never thought of Lima as a fashion capital, but Peru’s fashion industry is booming and fashion experts are paying attention. Peruvian fashion has captured the attention of international fashion experts and is influencing other major fashion capitals in Latin America, North America and Europe.

According to a recent article published by a Peruvian newspaper of economics, Gestion, the growth of the luxury fashion industry in Lima is expected to reach double digits.

Just a few weeks ago, Lima celebrated its 5th edition of Lima Fashion Week, also known as LIF Week. At the event, distinguished Peruvian designer Claudia Jimenez presented a summer collection that highlights trends such as glitter and white, with the addition of color accents for the Latin woman.

Peru is now recognized for its design and fashion industry. International designers such as Channel, Salvatore Ferragamo, Versace are supporting Peruvian designers.
