While Beyoncé, Jay Z, and Blue Ivy were exploring the collection of close to 240 years of design aesthetic and creativity, the diva snapped a picture of South African designer Laduma Ngxokolo’s work and shared in on her ‘My Life’ diary. Ngxokolo is a South African designer who is renowned for or his textile and knitwear creations inspired by traditional Xhosa beadwork. He launched his brand, MaXhosa by Laduma, in 2011 and has already been featured in several famous exhibitions around the world. He recently won the 2015 Vogue Italia Scouting for Africa prize.

Earlier this year, sales for American chain restaurant Red Lobster hit the roof after the diva mentioned the brand in one of her songs. Don’t be surprised if Laduma’s products increase in popularity as well.
