Beyonce’s been accused in the past of co-opting/liberally borrowing/ghostwriting/sampling before and now it looks like that M.O. may be following her into the world of fashion as well.
Her new fashion venture, Ivy Park, is only just getting off the ground but it is already feeling the heat after an Elle cover gone wrong wrong wrong!
According to KD New York, Beyoncé’s people have had their credits removed and there has been a formation against the diva receiving acclaim for something she didn’t create.
Here is what owner David Lee had to say when asked about the fiasco:
“We were fully credited when the story went up, and then I went back a couple of days later and it was removed. Someone close to Beyoncé called and said the credits were going to be removed without any explanation.”
Current credits only list Ivy Park as the clothier and Lee is not backing down without a fight and apparently wants a retraction. He continues…
“If you look at what’s up online right now, it’s implying that everything there belongs to another company. We’re a dance manufacturer in The Bronx. We’re talking about Beyoncé and Topshop sharing a little bit of credit. 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.”
So far, there has been no comment from Camp Bey, but we are certain her Beyhive will have something to say.
Because they always do.
