It was an intimate red carpet affair held on a Sunday evening. Friends, family and lovers of carnival gathered in the SIPA auditorium at the FIU South Campus to watch history unfold. In the entrance, there were tables decorated with masks and beads while there was a step and repeat if you wanted to show your photogenic side. On the stairs stood a young woman dressed in a long blue streaming gown made by Sasha-Ann Clement, founder of Audaz Eventz. She was quite statuesque I must say, as she stood there flawlessly and poised the entire night!
