Beyoncé for House of Dereón***

Queen Bey’s career already included singer, dancer, and actor. so it was only a matter of time before she added fashion designers to her list of achievements. Beyoncé created a brand of stylish ready-to-wear inspired and named after her late grandmother with the help of her mother Tina Knowles. It becomes famous for designing Destiny’s Child’s oh-so-early millennial matching ensembles. Beyoncé is involved with the House of Deréon. Her song “Get Me Bodied” addresses the apparel line. Hip-hop elements are mixed with ultra-feminine touches like embroidery and ruffles.

Wu-Tang Clan for Wu-Wear***

Wu Wear originated as a response to the growing demand for bootleg Wu-Tang T-shirts. It has since grown into a line of designer clothing and accessories. With fair price points and a reputation of combating bootleggers, it’d be difficult to promote any Wu Wear-branded items.
