We were really excited when we got asked to provide Dickies Girl tops and pants for the incredible female backup dancers performing in the Kendrick Lamar opening number at this year’s BET Awards.
We filled a car with Dickies Girl product and rushed to Downtown LA’s Microsoft Theater at L.A. Live for fittings.
While the prop masters were working on the set pieces,
the costume designer got the dancers laced up in khakis and button-down shirts.
Then it was time for dress rehearsals.
The dancers ran though the entire performance at least a dozen times without lyrics, breaking it down beat by beat until they nailed it. Then suddenly we heard Kendrick Lamar rhyming and he appeared for the final run through!
The following day, we were back at the theater. The energy was high and the dancers were fired up.
The stage was set and it was show time. We watched Kendrick Lamar’s mesmerizing performance of his anthem “Alright” from the control room.
When it was all said and done, Kendrick Lamar and his TDE team had brought the crowd to their feet with the best performance of the night! Dickies Girl thanks Kendrick Lamar, BET and most of all Dandri Designs for bringing us in on such a great event! If you haven’t peeped the performance, you can check it out here:
