The second edition of Gamarra Produce will run for six months and will include the participation of Italian designer Francesca Liberatore, who has worked at major fashion houses such as Viktor & Rolf in Amsterdam, Jean Paul Gaultier in Paris and Brioni in Italy.
 
Francesca will be joined by prominent Peruvian designers like Andrea Llosa, Amaro Casanova, Roxana Laura Loo and Sacchi, who will help the companies develop their collections.
 
The Gamarra Produce initiative is part of the Ministry of Production’s multi-sectoral strategy “Me Pongo Gamarra”.
 
The Gamarra textile emporium is the largest in South America and young Peruvian designers have set the goal of making Gamarra products a benchmark for fashion in the world, the statement said.
