Tina Knowles-Lawson Had An Unlikely Inspiration For Destiny Child’s Camouflage Costumes

When a record company gave Tina Knowles-Lawson a $1500 budget to dress Destiny?€?s Child, she used her creativity to establish a style that can only be described as denim glam.

?€?I?€?m a huge fan of Motown,?€? said Lawson on the Beauty and Style stage at the 2017 ESSENCE Festival in New Orleans. ?€?When you saw them on stage, you saw sparkle?€?you saw attitude. They didn?€?t have on t-shirt and jeans.?€?

Creating something out of nothing, Lawson remembered buying expensive fabric to make costumes, though she admits some of them look ?€?real crazy?€? now.

She also recalled when a trip to Jamaica went awry, leaving the singing group’s costumes nowhere to be found. Beyonce and Solange’s mom sprung into action, buying camouflage from a local flea market to create the “Survivor” era costumes that took the press by storm.

?€?The camouflage was probably my favorite thing,?€? said Lawson, as she described how New Orleans native Master P, a regular camo flaunter of that time, was her inspiration for one of the most well-known Destiny?€?s Child costumes.

Although Lawson is known for the fab styling of her daughters and the group members ofDestiny?€?s Child, she is also a style icon in her own right.

When asked what inspires her personal style, Lawson acknowledged Diahann Caroll and ?€?the boss?€? Diana Ross, who will be hitting the Mercedes-Benz Superdome stage tonight (June 30).

?€?Diana Ross… she?€?s the bomb,?€? said Lawson. ?€?I loved Diahann Caroll growing up. I love a sophisticated classy woman.?€?
