During the Renaissance world tour that began last month, Beyoncé wore a collection Stunning, ever-changing bespoke clothing: Loewe, Mugler, Valentino, Vivienne Westwood, David Koma, Alexander McQueen and more. It’s clear that Beyoncé is in her fashion era right now. As it turns out, so are her fans.
Nerrisa Pratt, who lives in Farnborough, UK, was on one of the tour’s five London dates, broke down shortly after watching a clip of her sewing machine tour at First performance on social media. She decided to reinvent the glittery nude Loewe bodysuit by Jonathan Anderson, which Bey wore on the runway. With no options for her 6-foot-1 height, Pratt said she started making her own clothes, which she creatively recreated using “shiny dancing spandex and cosplay Harley Quinn patterns from Simplicity.” Next, she used Photoshop to create a trompe l’oeil hand of the bodysuit, playfully adorning Beyoncé’s figure, and then cut out a copy on vinyl.
“I’m a huge Beyoncé fan, every time she enters a new era, it always resonates with me. It’s so easy to get smitten with her,” Pratt said. The whole process took her five days to complete. Pratt credits TikTok for her idea. Other fans showed off their impressively intricate DIY designs, which included sequined cowboy hats, fringed western jackets and beaded hand fans. Seeing them, Pratt began to feel pressure to put on a strong face.
“I knew I had to come right,” said 000 year old. She did it. TikTok Spotlight Final Ensemble has received over 700,000 views.
Pratt isn’t the only BeyHive fan club member who’s become a DIY designer of sorts. On social media, fans are taking advantage of Renaissance unique dancehall aesthetics with homemade looks (or maybe lewks
