Originally from Trinidad, Ms. Gwyneth Squires has been making costumer for 34 years and has established a presence in Barbados— designing costumer for Kiddie and Grand Kadooment Day. Carnival, Squires, as well as other designers in the Band House, shared is “part of the soul.” In what ways does carnival practice (whether jumping, costume design etc.) expand upon notions of pan Caribbean identity? I extend infinite gratitude to Ms. Gwyneth Squires for opening her space to me, Dione, Ricky, Patrick, and Chicky and the band house for their presence, thoughts, laughter, and deep support.
