Solange Knowles honoured at 2018 Parsons Benefit
Solange Knowles hit the red carpet at the Parsons School of Design event on Monday (May 21) in New York City. The 31-year-old singer was the guest of honour at the annual event, held at Pier Sixty in Chelsea Piers, in a bid to raise funds for The New School student scholarships.
Solange attended the evening event which included cocktails and dinner, with the other honourees including Gucci president Marco Bizzarri and Farfetch founder Jose Neves.
Solange, who recently designed a performance piece for the Hammer museum in Los Angeles, rocked a black cut-out ensemble featuring utility belts, pairing it with strappy black heels and silver earrings.
“This is really a beautiful night,” she said at the gala, adding “I rode here in stretch Hummer. I’m eternally grateful to any and everyone who has ever stopped me on the street and told me a story on how they’ve connected with my work in any capacity. You are literally what I do it for.”
