We're on the road to Jamaica Carnival 2019 and that means the return of our much loved series, Behind the Feathers.

Loop Jamaica goes behind the jewels and feathers of the mezmerizing Carnival costumes to speak to the designers about what inspired them.

And the 2019 series kicks off with Bonnie Lee, who has created the breath-taking Florence costume for Xodus.

Watch below as she reveals how she got into design by accident, and how she set new standards by designing the first wire bra and collar for Jamaica Carnival.
