The fashion world is familiar with Peter Dundas's most recent work from his time as creative director at Roberto Cavalli and Emilio Pucci. Dundas—known for his '70s-inspired rock 'n' roll style—has also been Beyoncé's go-to designer for the past few years (he was the mastermind behind the iconic yellow Lemonade dress), so it was only natural that the designer debuted his eponymous label at last night's Grammys with Bey rocking his stunning creations.
The Norwegian designer tells Vogue about his decision to dress Beyoncé to mark his collection, which he shared sketches for on Instagram. "Beyoncé and I have a long working relationship," he said. "I think she wanted someone she trusted and connected with on several levels, and felt the Lemonade dress had particularly been that. She also knew I was going solo and liked being the first to wear my new collection. Also, we both love yellow!"
As for the beautiful jeweled gold dress, Beyoncé wore for her performance, Dundas notes that it took 50 people working around the clock an entire week to complete and that the singer's growing baby bump was also a factor in the design, including keeping the news under wraps. He explains that "her measurements were constantly changing, and also keeping it a secret from my collaborators became increasingly challenging as she grew." If this is just a preview, then we seriously can't wait to see what Dundas designs next, because it will surely be epic.
