All artists seek validation in one form or another, and for Lady Dione Bevel, hers came via a New York Times story from November 2016.
She wasn’t the centerpiece for the feature, however, nor was her name mentioned anywhere in its text.
Bevel’s stamp on the piece sat front and center in the lead photo: Neo-soul singer Erykah Badu, the article’s subject, sitting in a chair as she gets her hair braided. The golden kimono she’s wrapped in is of Bevel’s brand, Lady Dione. Badu purchased the garment from Bevel just days before the shoot at her concert in Santa Ana, California.
