Shumaq showed a line of fun, funky and pretty frocks and rompers for spring. Basics were interpreted in palette of taupes, blacks and browns, with fun accent pieces in gold, orange and blue. There was something for all the daytime activities of the young and fun.

The Shumaq show was sponsored by Cotten Incorporated. Here is a quote from their press release:

"Shumaq is an up and coming clothing line and sister act by Peruvian natives Vanessa Barrantes and her business partner sister, Jacqueline Barrantes.

Barrantes has successfully carved a sweet niche for herself as the go-to girl for the ultimate cocktail dress or sophisticated skirts that are ideal for the woman who celebrates her beauty and wears her love of fashion on her sleeve. The collection has quickly gained a following of fashion minded twenty and thirty something professionals in search of items that look and feel as expensive as the couture seen in the latest high fashion magazines.

Vanessa Barrantes has also become the fashion spokesperson for Cotton Incorporated's Spanish-language consumer website Watch for her to appear in a national media tour through the end of August."
