Solange Knowles has truly made her mark on the fashion industry. She has signed to Next Models, is currently fronting the campaign for Madewell‘s Fall 2012 collection and appears in Elle Magazine in a feature about her home in Brooklyn. However, it’s her latest appearance in a video and advertisement for Fashion’s Night Out that could truly help her reach her goal of becoming a household name in the fashion industry.
Though its popularity has waned, Fashion’s Night Out is Anna Wintour’s personal project, and the Vogue editor hand selects all the models and celebrities who participate in the campaign. That she chose Solange is indicative of the Knowles sister’s growing presence and burgeoning respect from the best in the business.
It’s also a signal of appreciation for her dynamic singular style. In the official ad, Solange wears the Fashion’s Night Out black and white tee with a printed skirt in the same hues, bringing to mind the frenetic yet stylish mixing of prints that she is known for. She also rocks her growing natural ‘fro in the campaign, adding diversity to the mix of textures and styles represented in the video.
The clip also features appearances by Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Usher, Victoria Beckham, Marc Jacobs, Liya Kebede and more.
