The annual Wearable Art Gala for the WACO (Where Art Can Occur) Theater is hosted by its founders, Richard and Tina Lawson. Commonly known as Beyonce’s mom and step dad :). The theme changes yearly, and this year’s theme was The Lion King. Very fitting as the live remake comes out this summer and Beyonce co-stars as the voice of Nala. Check out the African inspired bespoke ensembles below.
