Expanding the brand, Beyoncé and her sister Solange Knowles launched the junior line Deréon that is geared towards younger consumers and is more reasonably priced. Deréon was introduced in 2006. The tag line for Deréon is “Where the sidewalk and catwalk meet”. This line includes more casualwear, such as sweatpants and embroidered hooded sweatshirts. Both women are models for both clothing lines and are featured on most marketing campaigns. In 2007, members of Beyoncé’s touring band, Suga Mama appeared in print ads.
House of Deréon was announced to the media in September 2004, by Tina and Beyoncé Knowles. House of Deréon’s tagline is “Couture.Kick.Soul” which represents the three generation of women. Agnèz Deréon is the “soul,” Tina Knowles is the “couture,” and Beyonce is the “kick.” While Beyoncé was performing in the group Destiny’s Child, her mother Tina would design and sew their outfits, especially when the group was first starting out and did not have much money or access to designer clothing. Part of what called attention to Destiny’s Child, besides their obvious talent, was their one-of-a-kind fashions. Their style set them apart, yet gave the group cohesion as a similar style, color or garment was worn by all the members.
