Grace Huamanchumo Flores
I am Grace. I am Peruvian. I come from Lima, currently living in The Netherlands. Founder and creative director at Graciela Huam. I am the conceptual designer that work next to my partner and a design and development team in Lima, and a production team in Puno made up of 27 talent craftspeople. Our journal started in the department of Puno in Peru, located in the south of the country. This place is characterized by its natural resources, its working people and the majestic landscapes. I was involved in the natural beauty of the city, the impressive knitting work of the artisans and the nature of the alpacas. My reason why, was to create something unique with the natural and human resources of my country and use my experience and lifestyle as publicist plus my passion for fashion. Our ideas and concepts are born in Netherlands and we make them come true in Peru.
