Beyoncé Exclusively Wore Black Designers for Juneteenth and Every Single Look Is Epic

After closing the British leg of her Renaissance tour recently—during which she championed a cadre of homegrown designers—, Beyoncé took to the stage in Amsterdam on Sunday evening to shine a light on Black fashion brands.

Taking to Instagram to share a series of photos in which the multi-hyphenate can be seen wearing a red rhinestone dress, Bey wrote: “In honor of Juneteenth, everything I wore for RENAISSANCE WORLD TOUR tonight was created exclusively by Black designers.”

The Black designers Bey championed onstage included London label Feben, Maximilian Davis for Ferragamo, Olivier Rousteing for Balmain, Ibrahim Kamara for Off-White, LaQuan Smith, and several of the singer’s own designs for Ivy Park, the athleisure brand she founded in 2016. Btw, Beyoncé has collaborated with stylists KJ Moody, Shiona Turini, and Karen Langley for her disco-inspired Renaissance tour.

Juneteenth is a federal holiday in the United States which commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans.

Beyoncé has made a point to champion designers local to the areas in which she’s performed during the tour so far. The star performed onstage in Amsterdam in a design by Iris van Herpen, which was crafted from 980 different shapes, Swarovski crystals, and a glass-organza cape. The “Heliosphere” outfit involved 12 people from Iris van Herpen’s atelier, who worked for over a total of 700 hours on the look.

In London, the Ivy Park founder threw her weight behind myriad British brands, including Alexander McQueen—Bey wore a maroon dress-and-boots combination lifted straight from the label’s AW23 collection—and Roksanda.

The Renaissance tour, which is in honor of Bey’s seventh studio album of the same name, started in Stockholm in May and has seen her perform at 57 stadiums across Europe in the weeks since, including in Marseilles, Barcelona, and Amsterdam.
