For two years running we were commissioned to design for The London School of Samba’s (LSS) band entry into Notting Hill Carnival 2011 and 2012. These costumes also hit the streets later in each year at The Thames Festival night parade, Luton Carnival, Waterloo, Hackney and Germany street festival events.
We designed across all sections of the carnival band including Comissao de Frente, Passista, Baiana, Dance Ala, Indio, and the heart and soul of the band the Bateria! We couldn’t have asked to be part of a better Brasilian carnival band! London School of Samba know how to keep the beats a-playing and those feet a-moving!
We had tough footsteps to follow, as for the last five years previous, LSS had consistently been in the top ten of all the parading bands in the Notting Hill Carnival. Well we are delighted to say their reign continued under Vortex!
