Carnival, behind the scenes!

On a guided walk with London Historians (about which, more in a future post) we got the amazing chance to look around the premises of Mahogany Carnival group. They were full of activity for their busiest weekend of the year.

As well as the costumes being created for Notting Hill Carnival 2019, there are costumes from decades of previous events, many prize-winning. Our guide was Clary Salandy, both designer and a passionate advocate for this art.
