Million-Dollar Moms

"Couture. Kick. Soul." is the slogan for House of Deréon, the clothing line launched in 2004 by singer and actor Beyoncé Knowles and her mother, Tina Knowles. The business was named for Beyoncé's grandmother, Agnéz Deréon, a seamstress who inspired both mother and daughter to embrace their own fashion senses. A natural born entrepreneur, Tina Knowles owned a successful hair salon in Houston before she embarked on designing red carpet fashions for her daughter's hit singing group, Destiny's Child. Today, mother and daughter are equal partners in the business.
