New York Post Page Six Reports on Beyonce Elle Magazine Credit Removal
balleralert Clothing Company Fires Back After Not Being Given Fashion Credit for Beyonce's Elle Photoshoot-blogged firstname.lastname@example.org
Brass, from Bronx-based dancewear manufacturer KD New York, are not too impressed with #Beyonce's recent photo shoot with #Elle. The company is calling out the magazine for failing to give them their credit for the clothing that Beyonce wore throughout the shoot.
Though some of the items worn were a part of Bey's new clothing line #IvyPark, some items were apart of the company's collection. Owner David Lee said, "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.” According to Lee, they lent the magazine over 60 pieces for the shoot.
Online, Elle makes an effort to tell consumers to buy the magazine to see the full list of fashion credits. However, the company is still not satisfied, especially considering how Elle emphasized that Beyonce wears Ivy Park throughout the shoot. Lee 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.” Elle says they changed the formatting of the story to showcase content and better the user experience.
