The red runway is already set around the restaurant Divina Comedia´s courtyard. Tall white candlelights on the floor and the tables make the ambiance warmer. Opera singers, both men and women wearing red and black tuxedos, begin scattering the melodies of famous european composers such as Puccini, Verdi and Mozart. Personalities from Qosqo´s cultural and entrepreneural life trespass the old wood colonial door of the Arqueologo Hotel in the San Cristobal neighborhood just a few blocks from Qosqo´s main square. The fashion show Divina Moda by Divina Comedia is about to begin.
The fashion designers Natasha Vaugoyeau and Lucrecia Huaco, both from Qosqo, start the night show with the sound of the singers and the piano as a subtle backdrop. This event also features the creations of the venezuelan designer Luis Uzcategui who chose silk and peruvian cotton to design his new outfits. The models are also very enthusiastic because for most of them this is the first time to take part in an event like this.
Having this kind of shows is very important for Qosqo since more and more people in Peru and around the world would know that the great past of the inca empire can be enlightened with a lively social and cultural life today, says one of the participants.
The Divina Comedia restaurant is located at the corner of Pumacurco and Ladrillos streets, one block up the Nazarenas Square in the San Cristobal neighborhood.
