RIOBAMBA, Ecuador - After years of taking a back seat to Western style, indigenous fashion is re-emerging in Ecuador, thanks to a new generation of designers who are re-imagining traditional clothes.

"Make the turn snappy!" said Juana Chicaiza, who founded the modeling agency "Awkis y Nustas" - "Princes and Queens" in the Quechua language.

She is teaching her young charges how to best show off the "anaco", a traditional Andean skirt, on the catwalks.
