  1. EVELYN BROOKS DESIGNS GOES GREEN FOR JEWELRY FASHION SHOW

    Greater Washington Fashion Chamber of Commerce
    and the Embassy of Peru serves as co-sponsors

    Evelyn Brooks, owner of Evelyn Brooks Designs will present her latest fall collection of men and women jewelry at the “Going Green for Jewelry” Fashion Show Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at Poste Brasserie – Hotel Monaco, located at 555 8th Street, NW. This signature event will occur on the 123rd Independence Day of Peru. The fashion show is inspired by the “Tapadas Limenas”. The “Tapadas Limenas” has its origins in Peruvian Virreynal times (1560-1860), in which women from Lima covered their face and head with beautiful silk Spanish style veils, leaving only one eye uncovered.

    The fall collection captures a blend of warm and cool colors contained in the naturally beautiful seeds known as HUAYRUROS, which grows in a very rich red, orange and black colors; bringing an exquisite and vibrant color to the designs. The seeds are mixed with delicate and intricate sterling silver filigree, which creates a breath-taking contemporary and elegant one of a kind jewelry piece.
