"New" Designer for Carnival 2011?

While the term "new" is being used to describe this designer it  is actually a misnomer as said designer got their designing chops whet this year with a hugely popular costume in their band. The costume received rave reviews, even by me, as a first design attempt! I guess this was the boost of confidence needed as word reaching The Sauce is that this "designer" will be attempting to design ALL the sections of their band for 2011..........ok then!

While I always applaud new talent and I am eagerly looking forward to the 14 or so novel designs this designer comes up with I cannot help but wonder if said designer will be biting off more than they can chew. Granted their debut design was a hit, but not without the aid and influence of others who indelibly left their mark on that costume. Does this "designer" have what it takes to churn out not one but several designs of exceptional quality and creativity  with NO prior experience in  creating mas? Only time will tell. Anyone can be a designer these days I guess; oh the power of the internet and costume suppliers in New York.

Lets hope for Carnival 2011 that the end product actually lives up to the hype of the prototype!
