YIKES! DANCEWEAR COMPANY ATTACKS BEYONCE FOR NOT CREDITING THEM IN ELLE MAGAZINE SPREAD


Okay so Beyoncé recently graced the cover of Elle magazine and well she gave quite the interview on feminism, Ivy Park and the pressure of feminism.

Well, a dancewear company in Bronx called her out for not giving proper credit for outfitting her in their leggings for the magazine spread. David Lee of KD New York claims that he lent the magazine over 60 pieces but their leggings were not credited to his company, rather Ivy Park received all the credit. He said “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. 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.”
Following this, an Elle rep responded to the claims saying that “the format of the story was modified solely to benefit user experience and showcase the content.”

Mehn it seemed like the folks at KD weren’t here for the response at all! “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.”
