Beyoncé is known for wearing up-and-coming designers’ clothing almost as much as she wears well-known labels. She’s also in full support of Black designers, donning their ensembles to events, in social media posts, and even on tour.
The saying goes, like mother, like daughter, and Bey and mom Tina Knowles don’t stray from the phrase.
The 62-year-old mother illustrated where Beyoncé learned to utilize her platform to uplift go-getter designers. Mama Tina, as we affectionately like to call her, gave some love to Jerome Lamaar, the fashion designer behind 5:31 JÉRÔME, an avant-garde and glamour collection. She posted an Instagram photo of her looking fabulous in an embellished blouse.
She proudly stated how happy she was to have a piece of clothing to wear for a fundraiser in Houston, Texas, where she said she needed an ensemble that depicted art. She also gave Jerome a shout out, “Check out this young talented designer. He has been at it since 15-years-old.”
