MOTHER-DAUGHTER DISH: Beyonce And Tina Knowles DISCUSS Fabrics, Designs, And Bey's Pregnancy

 

We told you earlier that Beyonce and Tina Knowles recently launched the House of Dereon at Selfridges in London, and they also did a cute mother/daughter interview about the line and about Beyonce's pregnancy.  Read the highlights inside...

 

Beyonce and her mom Tina Knowles recently sat down with CNN to discuss the House of Dereon launching in London and Bey even talked about how her pregnancy is affecting her clothing choices.  See the excerpts below:

Beyonce: I grew up in a fabric store. Unfortunately my mother would say: "Come on let's go to the fabric store," and she would make all of these beautiful clothes for myself and the other ladies of Destiny's Child.  And after so many years my fans said we want to buy these clothes somewhere.  So it was a natural thing for us to do this line.  It's so great for us to be able to do it together, number one because we get to spend time together, and two, because we have such respect for each others' taste.

CNN (Becky): Tina what is it like to see not just your daughter but your designs on television?

Tina Knowles: Oh it's unbelievable sometimes and I never anticipated that. I started designing things out of necessity because there were budgetary restraints. So I would buy fabrics instead of clothes and just make them.

CNN: How do you get along with each other? Do you fall out over design?

Beyonce: Sometimes, but it's very rare. I think we will get into it and it's usually over the phone, not in person and then we'll hang up and call each other and say you're right. We have such similar taste, but there's respect. I respect my mother so much and she respects my taste as well, so we have a lot of trust.

CNN: Many fans will call it "Beyonce style" -- where do you get the inspiration?

Beyonce: This collection was inspired by a lot of my travels. I did a world tour, I traveled to Asia, Brazil, all over the world and I saw such beauty and my mother traveled with me and we decided we should mix these great cultures together and make something original and beautiful, and this show celebrates the global nomad.  And one day at the rate we're going, which is such a beautiful thing, tere won't be all these different races--we'll all just be mixed up and beautiful and that is so wonderful exciting and refreshing you know.  We have the mixtures of the African hair wraps and some of the Asian prints and we mix it with different textures sequins and gold jewelery and it just becomes very refreshing.

CNN: Miss Tina, is there any one piece that comes to mind that you think that is the inspiration?

Tina: I think the holiday collection -- what Beyonce is wearing now. We were inspired by her travels and we did a lot of different prints, sequins, glitz and glamor and we mixed it with some funky things.

CNN: Congratulations on the pregnancy. Does the collection now include maternity wear -- everybody will be asking that question?

Beyonce: What I'm wearing today is part of the collection and it's not supposed to be, but it actually is really good for the maternity.  But we didn't plan for it six months ago - actually longer than that - but we do have some things that I am still trying to rock.

CNN: Are you struggling to find things that you feel good in where your husband might go err, I'm not having that?

Beyonce: Actually I am having so much fun, it has been the most fun time now that it has been announced and I don't have to, you know, it was really difficult to conceal, but now that I can be proud and excited about it I'm having so much fun shopping -- it's great.

Becky to Tina: You must be delighted

Tina: I am so delighted. I'm over the moon.

CNN: Do you know what you're having?

Beyonce: I don't.

CNN: And if you did you wouldn't tell me! Do you consider this more fashion than style and the idea being you're sort of universal, you are for the universal woman -- who is the House of Dereon woman?

Tina: I think trend-setting woman, confident, has her own style.

Beyonce: Yes someone bold, someone who wants to stand out, someone confident, hard working and I think it is more about style than fashion -- it's a lifestyle and we just want to bring out that inner confidence and inner beauty in every woman.

CNN: And has your attitude towards style, fashion changed since you learned you were pregnant?

Beyonce: I just feel like it is often within. My mother has always told me that beauty comes from within and what's exciting about being a woman is you can say, 'Today I feel really conservative...Today I'm feeling classy...Today I am going on a date and I want to just be a showstopper' and you know there is this variety of beautiful clothes that can bring out whatever you feel inside.  But it comes from here (points to heart).  And you should wear your clothes.  They shouldn't wear you.

CNN: So it doesn't come from Jay-Z -- that's what you're saying?

Beyonce: It comes from here.

SIDEBAR: How does Solange know what Bey is having if Bey says, as of Saturday, she doesn't know the sex of the baby?  Hmmm...

I never bothered to click on

I never bothered to click on the Solange post when she claimed to know the baby's sex cause I have no interest in her and didn't believe her. I thought back then that she was saying it just to get attention. Now I'm sure of it. The girl is an unbelievable brat, first she pops off on people for referring to her by her most well-known title "Beyonce's sister", then she does her best to milk some of Bey's pregnancy publicity for herself.

Dont sound so damn stupid YBF

Dont sound so damn stupid YBF !!!! Beyonce may not know the sex of the baby if she had an ultra sound and asked them not to tell her but to tell Solange and Jay z... Damn you ppl act like evertyhing she does is a big deal. I guess you can never be as successful as she is and have ppl just accept changes in your life without the negativity. I am very happy for her, every women should experience childbirth at least once if they want to start a family. she is very humnan role model , is she perfect NO I dont want anybody perfect as a role model. Does her and her husband have problems, I'm sure, but to the public eye we are not suppose to know what lies beneith. The clothing line I do agree , how can you expect me to wear your clothing if you don't ( here comes the conjuction) however, Dereon is a urban clothing line so it's for the epitomy of the young urban community. I wouldn't rock clothing with all the lables and the logos on them either, I would make it for the popular crowd too. She is doing more than the ppl readin this blog site, stuck at a dead end job who could begin to fantom their dreams.. Get a life #teambeyonce

Whatever the sex of the baby

Whatever the sex of the baby is I just hope they don't give it a weird hollywood baby or a ghetto baby name. (no offence) but, there are too many cute kids with these types of names. there are a lot of really good names out there. http://www.Nameberry.com

what is she talking about one

what is she talking about one race?crazy
Anonymous's picture

There is nothing crazy about

There is nothing crazy about the statement if look you deeper at what she was trying to say. She is saying that the "blending" of the fabric patterns of their line represents a "blending" of different cultures and ethnicities, so to speak. The meaning of her statement was that it would be nice if we lived in a world where there was no distinction between races, but instead just be ONE blended race.

Maybe Beyonce doesn't know..

Maybe Beyonce doesn't know.. Many women have sonograms and while the sex can be determined, she opted not to be told..so she's surprised. It's possible that Jay knows and told Solonge.. Or maybe Solonge went with her sister and knows first hand.

Three Things: 1. House of Dereon - If Beyonce and Solange don't even rock their own clothes, why should we? 2. Mama Knowles - Please stop with the plastic surgery. You were the prettiest woman over 50 until you messed up that pretty face...agh! 3. Glad to see mother/daughters connect on businesses. HOD needs a new creative director and brand manager....I'm available for hire.

Beyonce knows what she is

Beyonce knows what she is having, she is just not telling. Solange just blabbed and it did not get back to her yet!
DarkEmpress's picture

Either Solange or Beyonce is

Either Solange or Beyonce is lying, neither is a good look. HOD is some tacky looking mess, but like others have observed, Beyonce doesnt seem to have the greatest of fashion sense. And as much as she is kept in the public's eye, I would have thought she'd be more on point. Love her music, like her movies, but the fashion endeavor is not impressive. SN: this-like everything else on here-is just an opinion.
