Beyonce’s new Topshop collection is reportedly made by Sri Lankan factory workers earning just £4.30 a day.
Seamstresses making Beyonce’s activewear clothing line Ivy Park is made to work more than 60 hours per week, for less than half the average Sri Lankan wage, it has been revealed.
The singer’s 228-piece range has previously been criticised for being overpriced – with a pair of leggings costing as much as £100 – and excluding, as it only available up to a UK size 14.
Beyonce was first congratulated on promoting body positivity with a range of sizes available – from XXS to XL – until it became clear that a size XL was a size 14 (US size 12).
This blog approves of the decision not to make leggings in size 24. Purely on aesthetic grounds you understand.
