A fashionable treat for Beyonce
On singer Beyonce's birthday, we invite four designers to share their ideas on how to dress up the Pop diva
It would be exciting to dress up someone like Beyonce. I would like to see her in a sari, but with a quirky edge. So, my black and gold sari with the Kathakali dance motif on the pleats would work as the colours would complement her skin tone. If its Western wear then I’d choose my rib cutout blazer paired with high waisted shorts for one of her performances.

Keeping in mind the kind of designs I work with, I would love to see her dressed in Indian textiles, styled in a global sense. Vibrant colours such as burgundy, oxblood, jewel tones or teal would look lovely on her. While the fabrics and craftsmanship can be Indian, the accessories and hair styling should be international.
Beyonce would look great in a sporty look. From my designs, I would love to see her in a green and pink Bandhani sweatshirt paired with bum shorts and cool shoes. She has a great body, so, if I had to design something new, I would create a fitted T-shirt dress that’s loose on top and fitted at the bottom to give her a ghetto, sporty-glam look.
I would love to give her an edgy look, true to her style. So, leather applique with metal studs, and traditionally done Shibori style of tie-and-dye in lovely shades of blue and indigo. It should be a good mix of two worlds.
