A veteran of Roberto Cavalli and Emilio Pucci, Dundas has designed many of the pop star's iconic looks in music videos and public appearances for the last 10 years, including the golden dress from the "Lemonade" film and her costumes for the Mrs. Carter and Formation tours. His designs fiercely highlight her pregnant body, heightening the tension of her dangling off the stage in a mechanical chair during her performance.
The glittering costume and red and white evening gowns, a vivid contrast with the low-fi, innocent floral gettup photographer Awol Erizku shot Beyoncé in when Bey announced her pregnancy via Instagram last week, are the first of Dundas' debut eponymous collection. “Beyoncé and I have a long working relationship. I think she wanted someone she trusted and connected with on several levels, and felt the Lemonade dress had particularly been that,” he tells Vogue. “She also knew I was going solo and liked being the first to wear my new collection."
Get a glimpse into Dundas' process in the concept images he published to Instagram below.
