Giuliana Testino, a former professional basketball player and architecture student, had an unconventional path into fashion. But she was encouraged by photographer brother Mario to try her hand at knitwear. Inspired by Peru’s colorful pre-Inca textiles made from natural vegetable dyes, Giuliana created her own line, fusing crochet, straight needles, macramé, and intarsia techniques with cotton and baby alpaca. The result is an eclectic, handmade women’s collection—stylish dresses, cardigans, shawls, and capes—available in her San Isidro showroom. If you have ample time, Giuliana can even knit a garment in your preferred color.
