She's a Houstonian known to millions as the mother of Beyonce and Solange, but now Tina Knowles is becoming known in her own right, as the designer of a fashion line called Miss Tina. It's been sold on HSN and now her clothing is available at Wal-Mart.

On Saturday, Knowles was back in her hometown to unveil her clothes to a huge crowd of women at a store off Dunvale. They returned the favor by buying out every rack.

Knowles says this line was born out of her own frustration when shopping --finding a good fit at a good price.

"So I started designing tunic tops a little longer to cover your butt and a little fuller in the bust and in the sleeves and then I thought, you know, I bet women would really appreciate having something that fits everybody," Knowles said.

"It's good to see a stylish shirt for a larger person without spending a lot of money," shopper Jennifer Jones said.

Sizes for the clothing line range from a 2 to 20 and nearly every item costs less than $20.
