The Baishakhi Mela in London




The Baishakhi Mela parade is an annual event that takes place in London starting from Brick Lane to Weaver’s Fields. The conventional Bangla costumes, delicious food, music and activities are in abundance. I was browsing through the colorful pictures of the event on EEA website when I came across this stunning owl costume designed for the event.  



The large owl and the mechanical elephant were designed by Jennifer Lewis, Emma Garofalo and the women's group who helped with the traditional patterns. Did you attend or participate in the event?
