It’s Fat Tuesday! Mardi Gras in New Orleans reminds me of fried catfish, jambalaya, gumbo, crawfish, and dirty rice. Yum. Carnivals are filled with colorful costumes and crowns. These Mardi Gras costumes are in a league of their own (sort of like that over-the-top runway outfit you can’t seem to wear anywhere but the runway). Don’t overlook this category of fashion that costume designers spend all year preparing for.
Take Margie McGraw for instance, she had the creative vision to make her drawing into a wearable fashion statement for the carnival “runway”.
