Lima, Peru an Amazing Vacation Destination

With beautiful architecture, cool things to do and its very own fashion week, Lima, Peru, should be one of the cities at the top of your vacation destinations. Like many cities in South America, Lima just doesn't receive the attention that a city of this caliber truly deserves.

It's a real-life event that sounds like someone’s idea of a joke: “Lima Fashion Week.”

What could that be? Ponchos and bowler hats, modeled by llamas?

As it turned out, more than 10,000 local and international trend-mongers attended last spring’s Fashion Week shows at the sprawling Jockey Club in Lima, the capital of Peru.

Once there, they witnessed the creations of world-famous names like Kate Moss, as well as home-grown designers like Andrea Llosa, a woman whose frocks looked less like any preconceived notion of something Peruvian than like an art project from the German avant-garde.

While scores of models strutted through Lima’s streets for the city’s annual Fashion Week, so did their perennial soulmates — rock stars.
