The Peruvian Deputy Minister of Tourism, Jose Miguel Gammara, has opened an exhibition of renowned Peruvian photographer Mario Testino’s ‘Alta Moda’ at the Queen Sophia Spanish Institute in New York, which showcases a photographic memoir of costumes made from alpaca fibers worn by indigenous communities in Peru.
According to a statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism of Peru (MINCETUR), the Peruvian minister participated at the event in order to promote the brand Peru and to discuss the work being done by Technology Innovation Centers in the country for the artisans and producers of alpaca fiber.
The MINCETUR participation at the exhibition of the Peruvian photographer was to promote the Peruvian textiles sector in the fashion capital of US, especially in terms of the high-quality garments and delicate clothing made by the indigenous communities by using alpaca fiber.
The ‘Alta Moda’ exhibition, which translates to High Fashion, is a photographic memoir from Mario Testino dedicated to the indigenous of Peru. The exhibit displays a variety of portraits depicting the history of Peruvian costume tradition.
The exhibition, which is scheduled to run through March 29, 2014, features a series of photographs documenting various costumes made from alpaca fiber worn by the indigenous communities in the Peruvian provinces of Cusco, Calca, Chumbivilcas, Espinar and Paucartambo.
In April 2013, the world-renowned Peruvian photographer had unveiled the ‘Alta Moda’ exhibition for the first time in the Peruvian city of Lima.
