Their unique pieces have won them the Medium Band of the Year title for many years. A title again copped by K2K in 2019.

What makes them different from other Carnival bands?  Apart from their beautiful fabric designs and couture beading, the fact that masqueraders can wear the band’s designs again and again after Carnival. Even non-masqueraders can wear pieces from K2K at any special event.   

Twin designers Kathy and Karen Norman are now expanding their platform with the launch of their resort collection NORMI.

“NORMI & NORMI INC. is a sister company of K2K Alliance & Partners, with her focus almost identical to K2K’s, i.e., she is committed to producing artfully crafted garments for her clients,” according to a media release.

“However, her core difference is that she will provide effortless yet glamorous wardrobe statements for women. K2K on the other hand, will remain the costuming house, with versatile wardrobe pieces that can be used after the Carnival Season for the male and female clients.”

NORMI will offer a wider range of unique prints (solely focusing on prints used in past Carnival Collections) as well as a wider-range of items going forward.

“NORMI & NORMI INC. was created from the need to carve out a sense of escape – escape from the mundane; escape to a magical experience, escape to a sort of paradise marked by a sort of Trinbago-ness: sea breeze, coconut trees, and waves crashing on the shore, with the garments and campaigns behind NORMI, designed to transport you to that magical place,” the release said.

NORMI was created to make all brands of woman feel like she owns those qualities – sophistication; timeless elegance; power without forgoing femininity. Each gown also has her own story to tell, and at NORMI, we pride ourselves in keeping the storytelling aspect alive within this brand, which is also familiar to K2K.”
