Razzle Dazzle!

It’s time for BVI Festival, a vibrant celebration of freedom

Colour

A neutral backdrop always allows brilliant colour to leap forward. Energetic primary hues weave through the event.

Red is known as an action colour, increasing energy, spontaneity, and vitality. Purple and ‘hot pink’ stimulate imagination, intuition, music, and artistic vision. Yellow and green support optimism, enlightenment, increase fun, personal power, and creativity.

Big Stuff

Large storage solutions help house the wares needed for your festivities. Utilising a bold umbrella, and consumption of regional fruits and libations will keep you cool.

Expressive artwork evokes the attitude, just look into those eyes!

Ornamentation

In gatherings, utilise various sources of colourful lighting or shimmering lanterns to create the dance.

Texture in fabrics, beads, and sequins complement various elements of attire. 

Feathers have long been used in masks, headdresses, and costumes for celebrations worldwide. In current day, feathers are dyed to reflect vivid colour and are sure to catch some attention.

Enjoy the festivities!
