Emma Canales Anaya
Emma is our newest Huaywasi team member, joining us in June 2018. She graduated from Chio Lecca Fashion School in 2008 with a major in Architecture and Pattern Creation. She is using her expertise to create beautiful patterns in our upcoming Fall/Winter 2018 collection. In addition working with Huaywasi, Emma owns her own business creating samples for other fashion brands! Outside of work, she likes to travel—her favorite Peruvian destination is Puerto de Ilo, a coastal city in the South!
Lizbeth joins us as a current student at Chio Lecca Fashion School in Lima, majoring in Fashion Design and Management. She assists both the business and design branches of Huaywasi, using her creativity to help Mara design and her photography and Photoshop skills to ensure the beauty in our products shines in pictures. Outside of Huaywasi and school, Lizbeth enjoys eating, hanging out with friends, and drawing!
Jill, from the United States, joined Huaywasi’s team in April 2018 as the Business Communications & Development volunteer. Her degree is in Operations & Supply Management and Marketing, and she’s working to increase customer engagement across social media platforms and streamline operations, as well as helping with the Women’s Empowerment Program. Jill enjoys reading, running, and trying as much local Peruvian food as she possibly can (her favorite dish so far is Lomo Saltado)!
