Solange Knowles Mixing at DVF for Fashion’s Night Out 2012
Solange Knowles (model, blogger, style icon and singer) was the celebrity DJ at Diane von Furstenberg’s Meatpacking District Fashion’s Night Out in-store celebration on Thursday September 6th. The stylish Texas-native, Brooklyn resident got the crowd hyped playing classic hip-hop and R&B tunes including Toni Braxton, Whitney Houston and Jay-Z. Before her DJ duties, Solange pose for photos with DVF and Girls‘ star Allison Williams in her luxe Washington Street store. (Also in attendance were Olympic Gold Medalist Champion Allyson Felix, Steven Kolb, CEO, Council of Fashion Designers of America and Mayor Michael Bloomberg.) Must say that I love Solange’s printed wrap dress, bold red lip color, hair , jewelry, and swag!
The in-store public event went was definitely a great way to energize New York Fashion Week! Drinks and desserts were given out. There’s a MAC Cosmetics make-up consultation, palm readings, and a fun photo flip-book workshop session. DVF worked the store interacting with attendees. Billboard magazine’s Gregory Dellicarpini, Jr. of The Hook interviewed the celebrity attendees. The vibe there was upbeat! Solange captured photos of the crowd in between her DJ gigs with her totally, cool, vintage camera. (Will her photography moments show up on her amazing blog, mydamnblog.com, anytime soon?)
Fun times all around! I’m eager to see what print Solange will become obsessed with next.
