Image Nation Band Launch

Photos from Image Nations band launch of their Carnival 2009 "Coral Reef" are now online at Xclusiv Events:

Lots of interesting combinations like a bikini and bra set paired with genie pants and all manner of variations on the sailor theme.. my first response is "hmmmmm".

Of the three years that Image Nation has been a band to me this is their weakest (dare I even say most cosquel) presentation yet, and I am a supporter of their previous work. Some of the materials and colours did not translate from the sketches into reality I am afraid . On a positive note, I applaud the use of a plus sized model at the launch.


Vintage Tuesdays

The year is 1955, hailed as one of the biggest Carnivals ever, even the rain could not keep Her Royal Highness Princess Margaret from tapping her feet along with the steel band! Archived at TIME online is an article about the Princess' visit and LIFE magazine also featured her on the cover during her visit to Trinidad.

Life Magazine February 21, 1955 : Color Cover - Margaret in Trinidad
