Theme:– “The Year of ‘Growmance’
Where Love Beats Fear in Upping Our Game This Year” (Old-School Flava)
Some in the urban fashion world are abuzz with the news. It seems sista girl is ready to step outside the shadow of her big sister. With Beyoncé busy wrapping-up her ‘Mrs. Carter’ World Tour, little sis is ready to rock her own boat. That’s right, Solange Knowles is looking to make waves among the big fish.
She posted on Instagram her new role as Art Director & Creative Consultant with Puma. She now gets to put her own spin on athletic fashion. Solange’s journey leaves clues for going from starting job to dream job. It might be fuel for going from rejection to being a top selection. It’s about how she filled-in the blanks.
This new gig didn’t happen by chance. She’s been developing her skills somewhat in the background. Many know of her recorded music. It’s where her first love was born. But Solange and other dreamers raise their game and fine-tune their passion by doing for free what they eventually hoped to do for a fee.
She doesn’t have anywhere close to the mass-market appeal of her sister. Beyoncé can sell-out stadiums in the U.S. and overseas in a heartbeat. But Solange might say that’s not really the comparison to make. For dreamers it’s really about turning ability into a capability that serves a market or community.
Maybe this shows there’s enough room for many-a-dream in the ‘consumer ocean’ marketplace. Those dreams come in different shapes and sizes. They’re loaded with unique talents and features. They come with varying bells and whistles. Solange puts it together in a venture that’s more like a life’s adventure.
