Award–winning carnaval costume designer Fitzgerald DeFreitas has over 50 years of costume design and creation experience. He is well known through North American Caribbean communities for his presentations and he is dedicated to promoting the art of costuming.

This event is one in a series of carnaval–related events on the UI campus. The final products of these sessions and workshops will be featured in – or serve as inspiration for – floats, costumes, props, masks, and puppets for the Iowa City Carnaval Parade in June 2013 during the Iowa City Arts Festival.
