High Commissioners in attendance
Acting High Commissioner - Miss Janet Charles and Deputy High Commissioner/Minister Counsellor Mrs. Leonne Theodore John
This year’s event, as with previous years, was very well attended, with a diverse audience from across the UK, who enjoyed a fantastic night of Caribbean culture and entertainment. We were also blessed with speeches from several of our distinguished Caribbean High commissioners or their representatives and we would like to thank them for gracing us with their presence and also for their words of encouragement for MCUK and also the information they imparted to the community about their Caribbean Countries.
The next segment was the spectacular ‘Carnival Round’, which showcases the energy, vibrancy, music and colour, which is our homage to our Caribbean heritage. The contestants get to reveal one of their many talents with this fantastic opening dance section.
2019 Carnival Costume Designer
Yoshi Flower MAS is a contemporary brand that delivers bespoke costume pieces and jewellery to our growing clientele. Inclusivity is central to our values here at Y.F MAS, we cater to all shapes, sizes and ages; what makes you special as an individual is what makes us stand out as a collective. Y.F Mas was developed by West London artist & designer Meoshi Alleyne (nicknamed Yoshi Flower), inspired by her upbringing in Barbados and passion for traditional Caribbean masquerade and arts. Specialising in elaborate, hand-crafted headwear, Meoshi began cultivating her own layered tiaras, crowns and individual pieces for carnival goers in the UK & West Indies. What started off as small and exclusive pieces has now blossomed into two full collections. 2019 we featured as a highly anticipated private section of one of the most electrifying Mas Bands in the UK - D-Riddim Tribe; We have since networked and hope to collaborate with some of the illustrious names throughout the UK in the years to come. We envision being a brand that maintains the relationship between traditional masquerade and futuristic designs, with aspirations to expand and collaborate with prominent bands across the world. We aim to avert from one-dimensional looks and provide tasteful, detailed and flattering designs that promote body positivity, confidence and pride. Our consumers share our love and passion for the culture and remain central focus. Y.F Mas is an experience and a true representation of unity - where together, we will keep the culture alive. We aim to flourish into a community and we invite you to be a part of it.
“Mas For All & All For Mas”.
