Sketches have been released of from Beyonce’s up and coming 2009 World Tour wardrobe. Though the drawings come after the “Like a Circus” singer, they have a unique flair of their own.

 Apparently Beyonce saw some of French designer Thierry Mugler’s work at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute’s “Superheroes” exhibit in May, 2008. From there Mugler signed on to be the creative advisor and costume designer of the “Diva” singer’s tour.

I remember watching rapper Snoop Dogg’s show on the E! Network “FatherHood.” I also remember his wife Shante Broadus talking about her desire to start her own clothing line. What I did not know was that Mrs. Dogg’s line is already hitting the catwalks and sidewalks. 

Co Co Ri was released over the summer. BET featured the line in their fashion appreciation show “Rip the Runway.”

Broadus’s pieces in the clothing line are colorful. I also appreciate the fact that the clothing is tailor towards a variety of body types. However, the some clothing does not look realistic or well made. Many of the pieces look like they are of thin fabric. Having a shirt that looks attractive is nice, but, if it is only good for deep layering, it won’t go far. In addition to texture, some pieces are bold but they almost cross the line of looking like costumes.

Though it needs  revisions before its next season release, Coco Ri is on its way of marking a mark in the world of fashion.
