Since the beginning of her music career, Beyoncé has rocked Black fashion.
Fast forward to today, and Beyoncé has yet to let up on showing love to Black-owned brands.
As previously reported by AfroTech, after she named-dropped Telfar in “Summer Renaissance,” views of the merchandise went up 85% globally on TheRealReal, a luxury resale marketplace. Plus, searches for the brand “Telfar” were reportedly higher than Hermes’ “Birkin bag” for five hours the day after “Renaissance” dropped.
In celebration of Juneteenth, Beyoncé put the spotlight on Black talent even more.
During her Renaissance World Tour stop in Amsterdam, Netherlands, the entertainer exclusively wore outfits created by Black designers, including herself.
“I started designing this collection over a year ago,” Beyoncé wrote in an Instagram caption. “I was so engulfed in all things RENAISSANCE and was inspired by Studio 54, Bob Mackie and the disco era. I wanted to do a modern twist using the signature IVY PARK neon and bring disco to the beach in this swim collection.”
She added, “I’m so happy to share this with you and even more proud to launch it for the first time on the RENAISSANCE WORLD TOUR.”
Below are more of the Black designers that Beyoncé wore on stage.
Ferragamo Creative Director Maximilian Davis designed multiple outfits including a red, bead- and crystal-embroidered dress.
“It was an honor to create (these) looks for Beyoncé and be a part of her creative process,” Davis said in a statement, according to USA Today. “I wanted to design pieces that felt like they inhabited her spirit and style.”
Luxury fashion designer LaQuan Smith is behind Beyoncé’s metallic, shattered glass catsuit.
“I’m so happy the jumpsuit came to life in the most epic way,” Smith expressed under Beyoncé’s Instagram post. “What an honor to have you wear my design.”
If you were a fan of both Beyoncé’s silver and bee bodysuits, you can thank Olivier Rousteing, the creative director of Balmain.
“This was THE CELEBRATION,” Rousteing wrote in an Instagram post. “It has been tough, it has been hard, and change would never happen without you pushing since day one to make a better future where we can all express our creativity. You have been one of the first to make changes happen.”
