So, after my post entitled “Is this a new trend
” pointing out the fact that Ronnie & Caro’s costume from Trinidad Carnival 2008 ,”De Mang”, showed up at Red International
‘s band launch for St Lucia Carnival 2008, this new costume called “Breathtaking
” showed up on their website:
Curiously absent from the line up of sections is this costume, which can still be seen in their launch photos however.
It seems as if Red International
got rid of the controversial costume in favor of the new one called “Breathtaking
“! Now see, getting a brand new costume wasn’t so hard right? And the new costume is still pretty cute!
Edited to add:
Dulce 7 also wrote about Red International’s new costume on her blog and mentions that an insider from Red informed her that the costume was sold to them as “new designs”! I am glad that they decided to go with a new costume as if it is indeed true that the initial costume was sold as an original, that designer should be ashamed at the dishonesty!
