Four-year-old Daniel Julez, the son of singer Solange Knowles, has fast-become a trendsetter ever since he was photographed wearing a “My Autie Rocks” t-shirt while on an outing with his aunt Beyonce.
The “My Auntie Rocks” t-shirt was created by Todd Turfler, who says that the t-shirts have been “flying out of his St. Paul store (rebelinkbaby.com)” since Julez wore the toddler tee.
“I’m not sure if [Beyonce] picked it up at one of the boutiques or if she got it online or if a customer sent it,” Turfler said last Friday, “but one of my customers sent me the link Tuesday saying, This is your shirt. Sure enough, it is. We have been running around the country, Vegas, Atlanta, New York, doing the baby shows and we sell to boutiques around the country. I did contact Beyoncé’s publicity and Matthew Knowles, her manager and father, down in Houston, trying to get more shirts to the nephew.”
