IT TOOK 35 WORKERS, 10 DAYS TO MAKE THIS BEYONCE’S DRESS
It has been revealed, that the awesome dress Beyonce wore to the Wearable Art Gala, was made by 35 workers.
This past weekend, Beyoncé and her daughter Blue Ivy attended the WACO Theater Center’s Wearable Art Gala in matching shimmering, jaw-dropping gowns.
The event itself, which was co-founded and hosted by Beyonce’ s mom, Tina Knowles. The invited guests were to dress as characters from Wakanda, the fictional world showcased in Black Panther. So, naturally, Beyonce and Blue went looking like gold queens. Beyonce’s shimmering dress was however made by 35 workers for 10 days.
The custom dress, was created by fashion house Falguni Shane Peacock.
The designers, Falguni and Shane Peacock, told ELLE.com that once they found out the theme for the gala was WACO to Wakanda, they knew they wanted to create a statement gown inspired by the Nubian queen Amanishakheto.
“Amanishakheto was a powerful woman who led the Nubian people as their warrior queen,” they said. In order to translate this message into the design, they created metallic cutouts that mimicked the design of armor.
They also created an 11-foot, 3-D train, which was meant to highlight her Nubian royalty.
It took 35 workers about 10 days to complete the gown with Beyoncé and her stylist, Marni Senofonte, reviewing sketches and fabric swatches.
“We continued to work closely with them by sending over images along the way in order to achieve the vision,” said the designers.
