Digicel’s Costume Designer Takes Home 1st Place
Local designer Olympia Small-Sonaram who was responsible for designing the royalty costumes for cell phone giant Digicel has copped several first place positions following the annual float and costume competition last Wednesday.
Sonaram’s design was able to steal the first prize in the large full costume category, semi-costume small band, and the individual male and female costume. The renowned designer also tied with the ministry of culture in the individual king category.
The designer believes her success would not have been possible without the support of her workers since they too played a major role in bringing her ideas alive.
The designer said she decided to work on one band this time around and as such more time and energy was spent on ensuring that quality work was given to her client.
Meanwhile, The Guyana Power and Light Company despite a minor setback with its float still managed to win the first prize for the float commercial category while the non-commercial prize went to the Ministry of culture.
