Beyonce's Sister Solange Insists Fashion Is Not Her Thing

Beyonce unveiled a stunning campaign photo from the latest collection for House of Dereon last week. Beyonce and her mother Tina Knowles have worked together for years to launch, grow and expand the House of Dereon label. Just last year a pregnant Beyonce traveled to London with her mom to launch their label at Selfridges, a popular high-end retail store in London.

But while the 31-year old singer has found time in her schedule to support the Dereon brand, sister Solange Knowles isn’t eager to add designer to her name.

Easily the fashion favorite amongst the Knowles family with a penchant for mixing prints and landing numerous editorial gigs with labels like Madewell, Solange revealed she would rather leave the task of making beautiful clothes to trained professionals.

According to Grazia mag when asked if she would launch her own label the “Losing You” singer responded, “Honestly, I would never do anything like that — there’s so many talented designers that have such a massive skill and have been working on it for so long.”

There is still hope however that Solange will get her feet wet in the industry by collaboration with a designer.  “I’ve been approached a few times,’ she said. ‘It’s really a matter of the timing being right. There’s obviously a lot on my plate now, and my son is a high priority on my list.”

For now, we’ll stick to her capturing her fashionista moments on the red carpet and Beyonce’s House of Dereon campaign photos.
