Singing star Beyonce Knowles' clothing range House of Dereon has signed a licensing deal with G-III Apparel Group Ltd for an outerwear collection.

The contemporary clothing collection will be aimed at young women and is expected to debut in time for holiday delivery to specialty and department stores throughout the US.

House of Dereon consists of a design alliance of Knowles, Tina Knowles, and Heather Thomson Schindler.  Back in January, the company signed a licensing agreement with Tarrant Apparel's unit Private Brands.

G-III Apparel Group Ltd manufacturers and distributes outerwear and sportswear under licensed labels, own labels and private labels.

The Company also has fashion licenses with Kenneth Cole, Nine West, Cole Haan, Jones Apparel, Sean John, Cece Cord, Izod, House of Dereon, Bill Blass and James Dean, as well as several sports licenses.
