Acclaimed Peruvian designer Harumi Momota will present her latest collection at Couture Fashion Week for the first time at 8:00 pm on Saturday September 7, 2013. The runway show will be held in the Grand Ballroom of the New Yorker Hotel, 481 Eighth Avenue, in the heart of the city's Fashion District.

An award-winning fashion designer, Harumi Momota has been actively involved in textile design, product development and working with craft and industrial workshops in Peru for almost a decade.

She has taken a leading role in the creation and development of supply chains of Peruvian raw materials, labor and finished products that meet the strict standards of the world’s high-end markets. She has trained and collaborated with more than 2,500 artisans in many areas of the country including Lima, Puno, Ayacucho, Arequipa and Cusco.

Ms. Momota’s distinctive fashion collections have been shown at major events around the world including Colombia, Mexico, Ecuador, Chile, Paris, and the Dominican Republic, as well as at trade events representing Peru in Germany, the USA, London, and Japan.

Ms. Momota’s creations are made entirely by hand using ancestral Peruvian techniques that date back over 5,000 years, such as stick weaving, crochet and loom weaves. Her trademark fibers include yarns spun from fine alpaca and vicuna wool, as well as Pima cotton, Drytex and Andean blends.Harumi Momota Fashion Show at Couture Fashion Week NY
