Named after a term of endearment to which Tina Knowles is fondly referred by friends and family, the Miss Tina by Tina Knowles collection garnered a tremendous and loyal following since its original debut in August 2007. This new collection of sportswear consists of thirty pieces, which include denim, graphic t-shirts, embellished tops, day dresses, tunics, jackets, leggings and track suits.

So, I wanted to design a line for women that is fashion forward but at the same time addresses the problem areas that so many women struggle with. I am so thrilled to partner with Walmart as it allows me to create the Miss Tina by Tina Knowles sportswear line for a very affordable price for all women of many shapes and sizes."
