Remember my post about the party called "Pose" which takes place on the same night as Glow? Well, "Pose" is Glow reinvented!
The Promo:I have always found Glow to be boring, the first year of the fete in 2001 the music to me was deliberately kept low key, though I loved David Rudder’s song “Glow” being played repeatedly kept the party very mellow. The following the fete was packed! That was even worse than being boring since I could barely move through Mobs 2. The novelty of wearing all white to fete has long since died with the many other versions of Glow that have spawned since its inception.
Each top soca artiste is paired up with a local fashion designer for a photo session, utilizing a bolt of white cloth still attached to the spool, the photos from the session to be used in a keepsake mini-magazine distributed free of charge to promote the event.
Each Top soca artiste will be outfitted by their design partner for their performance
During the change of bands, while the DJ’s entertain the patrons with the hottest Soca for the season, dancers will sashay down short runways into ornately decorated gazebos, fabulously attired in avant gaurde couture stylings of designers.
The Soca Artisit:
Destra Garcia, Shurwayne Winchester, Bunji Garlin, Fay Ann Lyons, 2NTrigue and many more to be announced.
The Fashion Designers:
Meiling, Claudia Pegus, Heather Jones, Peter Elias, Sonia Mack, Ecliff Elie and Mill House.
Now we have this attempt to resuscitate Glow, “yes your white kit is still essential", with a fashion show between performances. Though the concept is borrowed from MTV's Fashionably loud, it would be interesting to see how receptive the crowd is to this idea during the heights of Carnival feteing. Unfortunately I will not be there to see it in person, I think I will be wearing black that night!
