Fresh off the tennis court, Serena Williams shows the world she can also be a fierce contender in the coveted fashion industry.
The “Serena Williams’ Signature Statement” debuted on day six of New York’s fashion week and garnered a great deal of frenzy. The runway show included a star-studded guest list with attendees like actor Marlon Wayans, supermodel Coco Rocha, recent opponent Caroline Wozniacki and the legendary Vogue editor Anna Wintour.
The collection featured faux leather leggings, sleek and sporty pieces and even several colored leopard prints.
The collection is quite affordable with leggings priced at $14.95, sweaters only $49.90 and sateen blazers under $30. Though these particular pieces will not be available until the spring, the overall collection is already available on the Home Shopping Network (HSN).
In a statement after the show HSN president and CMO Bill Brand said, “Serena truly is passionate about this. This is what Serena wears on the weekends. It’s the weekend dress-up look that Serena has captured in her collection. There was a hint of sport through all of it.”
This is not Williams’ first attempt in the fashion realm. In 2004 the 32-year-old victor launched Aneres, which is Serena spelled backwards.
The runway show took place at STYLE360, a fashion program that allows fashion designers to partner with corporate brands and come face-to-face with industry heavy hitters.
