Lima Fashion Week 2015

Lima Fashion Week 2015, Aracari Travel

Lima Fashion Week 2015 (LIF Week) starts this evening and runs until the 27th showing the work of top Peruvian fashion designers in addition to a few international invitees on the runway at the Jockey Club del Peru. This is the fifth edition of Lima Fashion Week and this week the designers will be presenting their Fall-Winter 2015 collections.

Last year, we introduced up-and-coming Peruvian fashion designer, Chiara Macchiavello of ESCUDO, to our readers. The motto of the brand ESCUDO is Devoted to Design, Committed to Heritage and the brand vision is, “One history, one people, one sentiment, one identity”. Chiara Macchiavello’s clothing line is modern, trendy and comfortable as well as heavily tied to Peruvian history and culture. She works directly with communities that specialize in weaving and embroidery both for inspiration and during the process of creating the pieces. She will be opening up the show this evening as one of the new talents.
