Notting Hill Carnival

Long Love Nottinghill Carnival

Long Love Notting Hill carnival inspired by the beauty that is carnival. Following the yearly negative reports on Notting Hill carnival and Brexit…I decided to get a team together and promote the right parts of carnival. The largest street festival in Europe originated in 1964, as a way for the Afro-Caribbean community to celebrate their own culture and tradition.

We teamed up with Gal-dem; an online platform empowering women and showcasing their opinion and views on political matters. I love carnival and embrace the positive light it sheds on Afro-Caribbean culture. Set up at the end of August, falling on the bank holiday, it is two days of pure enjoyment with everyone and anyone. We live, love, laugh at every carnival!

Check out my editorial creative directed and shoot coordinated by me.
