Colourful new look for samba band

Published: Friday 29 January 2016

Samba band Poco Loco are sporting some crazy costumes courtesy of fashion students at Blackpool and The Fylde College.

A vibrant splash of green, blue and yellow, the new uniforms were designed and made by 11 degree students in just three weeks, then shown off for the first time at an open evening this week.

The brief asked for a treasure box of pieces that could be mixed and matched, with some zany headwear completing the look.

Kathryn Jones, studying Fashion and Costume for Performance, said: “Poco Loco translates as a touch of madness so we tried to incorporate this. It was a challenging project, involving late nights with cups of coffee while researching samba bands and carnivals, but the end result was worth it.”

Poco Loco Chairman Phil Harrison, commented: “We are very grateful to the staff and the students who have done a fantastic job and created a costume that really captures the carnival atmosphere. It is so bright, colourful and a little crazy. It cannot fail to inspire us in our performance and will certainly ensure the band stands out in a crowd.”
