Tina Knowles

Celestine Ann "Tina" Knowles (née Beyincé; born January 4, 1954) is an American fashion designer known for her House of Deréon and Miss Tina by Tina Knowles fashion brands. She is perhaps best known as the mother of singers Beyoncé Knowles and Solange Knowles, and was the wife of Mathew Knowles, who managed Destiny's Child and then Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland until 2011. She was born in Galveston, Texas, the daughter of Agnès (née DeRouen) and Lumis Albert Beyincé. Her ancestry includes African, French, and Irish; she is a descendant of Acadian leader Joseph Broussard. Tina's rise to prominence came as costume designer for Destiny's Child. In the early days of her daughter's career, when money was limited, she created outfits that the members wore on-stage and to events. As the group grew more successful, Knowles' work enjoyed a greater level of visibility and success. Inspired by the legacy of Knowles' mother, seamstress Agnéz Deréon, she and Beyoncé decided to form a production company and create a fashion label. Initially, they launched House of Deréon, a young contemporary line, in 2005. In 2006, they launched Deréon, a casual lifestyle collection, but in 2012 it was discontinued
