Notting Hill Carnival 2016
Following the journey of Mahogany Carnival Designs
Notting Hill Carnival 2016 saw Unleashed Photo + Video follow the journey of Mahogany Carnival Designs. Mahogany has been an integral part of the Carnival year after year. 2016 sees Mahogany celebrate 20 years of costume design at the Notting Hill Carnival. Mahogany’s reputation for impressively large and colourful pieces precedes them and this year was no different. Mahogany has been also part of the 2012 London Olympic Games, the Golden Jubilee, the Dubai World Cup and many other major events. The man behind the mask known affectionately as “Speedy” is a genius in his ability to construct lightweight wearable pieces that seem utterly impossible. The emphasis on bringing community and family together to work towards the Carnival is a shining light. The team and community at and around Mahogany deserves praise and attention for bringing people together to show the enjoyment and creativity of the arts.
