Jessica Hewitt-Haynes is the winner of inaugural Xaymaca International Carnival Costume Design Competition.
The 18-year-old’s futuristic ‘Derezzed’ took top honours in the competition’s final judging, and will be showcased at Xaymaca’s 2020 Costume Presentation on November 29 at the National Indoor Sports Centre.
Despite not receiving the most votes on Xaymaca International’s Instagram Page for her final design, Hewitt-Haynes stated that she feels, “ecstatic about winning and receiving this opportunity” and enjoyed reading the comments below her costume.
“The comments under the post for my costume really helped me to feel better because persons were saying the design was unique,” said Hewitt-Haynes.
