Nottinghill Carnival 2019 is 8 months away and United Colours of Mas have already launched their costumes. Kaleidoscope is the theme of the presentation and the colours, gems, and feathers give you that mesmerizing feel. I’m going to walk you through the launch event and show you the costumes carefully crafted by UCOM.
Carnival with United Colours of Mas is a high-end production. Nottinghill Carnival with UCOM is a lavish lifestyle. I spent my Carnival with an amazing Mas troupe and I have the photos to prove it.

So, the previous post featured the BCBG MAX AZRIA catwalk images. This post features the Pre-Catwalk images.... i know my order is messed up and i should have posted this one first... However I found the pre-show images afterwards so it's not really my fault. Anyway, when I told you that i was in love with the brand, i meant it. These fashions are so beautiful, and i'm too poor to afford them :). So, take a look at the pre-catwalk photos and leave a comment telling me what you think >>
Just the other day my friends and I started playing this fashion game called Covet Fashion (it's available in the Appstore and Google Play). The fashions available in that game are so bomb and I love them. One of the brands I came across was BCBG MAX AZRIA and so I did a little research. I found one of their runway shows, fell more in love, and decided that you needed to know about them too :) so here we go >>
I was stalking the Vogue website and found some awesome catwalk fashions from House Of Holland. They will be premiered at the New York Fashion Week and i love them. They have a preppy edge while still managing to be fashion forward. Take a look!
