With just one week to go before Notting Hill Carnival, the FashAddict team are getting Carnival Fever! We can’t wait to get the party started, which is why we’re heading down to Cargo this Tuesday for Paraiso School of Samba‘s Carnival Launch Party.
We went along to Paraiso’s previous event at Cargo, their ‘Queen of Bateria’ competion last month, and had a fantastic time! Here are some pics from that night, courtesy of photographer Luigi Petro (http://www.lcpimages.net/)
The aim of the night was to find a new ‘Queen’ to represent the Paraiso Samba school for the coming year, so all the dancers were keen to impress the judges!
Last years Queen, Karin, enjoyed a dance with Paraiso founder Henrique da Silva…
…before new Queen Sharon was crowned!
And then the celebrations could begin!
If last month’s Queen of Bateria event is anything to go by, Tuesday’s Carnival Launch Party will be one not to miss! We’re especially excited at the chance to have a sneak peek at Paraiso’s stunning outfits for this year’s Notting Hill Carnival. Hope to see some of you FashAddict fans there!
