Beyonce’s Costume Designer Marni Senofonte Spotlights Emerging Designers on Renaissance

When Beyoncé’s seventh studio album, RENAISSANCE, was released on Friday, July 29, it arrived to a global reception of epic proportions.

The originator of the visual album format, and the preeminent visual artist, was intentional in not leading with visuals, giving fans the opportunity to be listeners and not viewers, and allowing them to truly hear the music before they see it. However, a tease of the visuals appears in the album packaging of RENAISSANCE, and the fashion is not to be missed.

The styling team, led by costume designer and longtime Beyoncé collaborator, Marni Senofonte, explains “My goal was to mirror Beyoncé’s song writing process by honoring the legends and pioneers of fashion as well as the participants of such genres including ball, house, techno, funk, R&B and hip-hop. My team and I aimed to create a fashion Renaissance by digging into the archives of legendary houses like Thierry MuglerGareth PughPierre Cardin to name a few, and scoured social media to discover and feature unknown and immerging designers which, at its core, is the essence of RENAISSANCE.”

On Friday, August 12th, Beyoncé released the official visual teaser for the first track on the album, “I’M THAT GIRL” on YouTube. The video features clips of Beyoncé from the to be released visuals featuring a taste of the fashion feast to come. Watch Here.
