You’ll not want to miss TruDYNASTY’s 2011 band launch. If their 2010 costumes blew you away, get prepared for 2011! The theme, The Roaring 20’s, leaves the door open to spectacular designs. TruDYNASTY will host 9 sections representing the 1920 era: Josephine Baker, CoCo Chanel, Bonnie & Clyde, Flapper Girls, Match Girls, Gangsterz, Show Girls, All That Jazz and Speak Easy.
‘This theme has tremendous creative potential. The Roaring 20’s is noted for its social, artistic, cultural dynamism and a break with traditions. We wanted to do a theme that hasn’t been done before and highlight an era that was exciting and revolutionary both in fashion and politics,’ said bandleaders Dario and Thea Jackson.
TruDYNASTY is becoming known for breaking from traditions, not only through costume design but also through being the 4th band in Caribana’s 44 years to win and jump from a ‘C’ band to an ‘A’ band.
This year their costume designs are positioned to break traditions again. However, TruDYNASTY has added another break – they’re donating a portion of every costume sale to charity – nine different charities, to be exact: Sickle Cell Ontario, The Covenant House, Ronald McDonald House Toronto, StepStones for Youth, Camp Awakening for Children with Disabilities, Nellie’s Women and Children Shelter, Youth Challenge Fund, Caribbean Children’s Foundation and The Princess Margaret Foundation.
Which section will be the show stopper this year? You be the judge, you may find there’s more than one!
