Choco Cream Salon & Boutique Inc. brings clothing and accessories from other parts of the world to Cebu. For example, it sells bags from Deréon. In 2006, singer/actress Beyoncé and her sister Solange launched Deréon, which is the junior line of the House of Deréon, the ready-to-wear company founded by Beyoncé and her mother/stylist Tina Knowles. Deréon is actually from the name of Beyoncé's maternal grandmother (Tina Knowles's mother), Agnèz Deréon, who was a well-known seamstress in Louisiana; thus, three generations of women with a common love of fashion and style inspire the Deréon business enterprise.
