Beyoncé Big Ups Young Designers Down Under

Beyonce shouts out emerging designers from Australia and New Zealand.

November 11, 2013

In a move that made FADER's emerging-designer-loving hearts beat a little faster, Beyoncé spectacularly found time to shout out a group of young designers from Down Under on her Beyhive Tumblr. In the most recent post, Bey gives props to sunglasses visionary Karen Walker (which she dons in the photo above), former Kanye-collaborator Dion Lee, New Zealand deconstructionists Nom*d and surfwear futurist Emma Mulholland—whom FADER profiled in last spring’s icon issue. So siked to see Queen B using her reign to help propel the careers of talented lesser-known designers—check them all out below.
