From November 6th to 8th, six brands showcased the best of Peruvian fashion inspired by the different regions of our country.
The Latin American Fashion Summit (LAFS) serves as an international platform for Latin American fashion and design.
Founded in 2018 by two visionary Latin entrepreneurs, Estefania Lacayo and Samantha Tams, LAFS gathers the best and brightest talents from Latin American fashion alongside influential figures from the global industry. This year, it took place from November 6th to 8th at the Miami Design District in Miami, Florida.
The Cutting Edge of Latin American Design
At the forefront of Latin American design, LAFS witnessed the presence of illustrious and visionary figures. Among them, the prominent Peruvian model on the international stage, Juana Burga, made a lasting impression on attendees, contributing her style and expertise to the event.
However, the essence of LAFS emerges within the Pop-Up space, where meticulously selected brands and designers exhibit and sell their creations. Six Peruvian brands stood out for the first time in this edition, carrying with them the richness and diversity of Peruvian fashion design.
The burst of Peruvian creativity
The explosion of Peruvian creativity was evident through these six brands representing the best of Peruvian talent at LAFS. From garments crafted using traditional weaving techniques and modern technology to timeless leather designs, the diversity of proposals was exceptional.
