The creativity of Saint Lucia’s costume designers shone brightly Monday night at the King and Queen of the Bands competition. It was a night of dazzling artistry but in the end, it was Tribe of Twel which blew away competitors taking both titles with its portrayal of ‘Luska – Guardian of the Imagica 13’ which won in the Queen’s competition. Sharon Tanner carried the costume.
In the King’s competition, it was Jordan Augier who danced his way to the crown with a costume that portrayed ‘Sunbird of Asgard’.
