When Beyoncé left the Global One Festival South Africa stage on Sunday night, she was wearing a design by local haute couture duo Quiteria & George, in partnership with Manualrossa.
The dress was an inspiration of the “METAMORPHOSIS” line recently showcased by Quiteria & George at the Africa Fashion Week, the duo said.
“We have always made it our mission to one-day dress Beyoncé, but we never thought that the day would come so soon," co-designer at Quiteria & George, Quiteria Kekana said.
"This dress was designed with the purpose to showcase our capabilities and is reflective of all the positive changes taking place.”
The other half of the design duo - George Malelu said that they were proud of their work. “Growing up, I never would have imagined that one day I would be part of history making like this.
"We are also grateful to the collaboration with Manualrossa, which shows what can be achieved when brands work together,” Malelu said.
