It was all good just a week ago…
Beyoncé had the BeyHive buzzing with excitement at the announcement of her new fashion venture Ivy Park. The Queen even went all out with a full spread in Elle magazine showcasing the athletic wear collection. And while it was well received from the online community, there’s one company who’s calling Bey a fraud!
According to PageSix, “Bronx-based dancewear manufacturer KD New York [is] fuming that they weren’t credited in Elle’s Beyoncé cover story.” Why you ask? Well apparently, some of the items you see in the mag are NOT Ivy Park. KD sent over 60 pieces for Yonce’s photo shoot with Elle, many of which she wore in the spread. But, when it came time for credits KD’s name came up missing.
“We were fully credited when the story went up, and then I went back a couple of days later and it was removed,” owner David Lee told PageSix. “Someone [close to Beyoncé] called and said the credits were going to be removed without any explanation.”
While Elle tells it’s readers to pick up the issue on stands to see the full list of complete fashion credits, Lee is calling BS. “It’s complete greed. It’s disgraceful that they could not share even a fashion credit with a ‘Made in USA’ minority-owned clothing line.”
