Venus Williams Is Now a Fashion Designer! Her Tennis Line Is Out Now!
Called EleVen, Venus Williams’ new tennis clothing line shows us why she’s an eleven out of ten!
As if being an all-around awesome athlete wasn’t enough, Venus Williams has added sportswear designer to her repertoire . Introducing EleVen by Venus Williams, it’s the only sportswear line designed by an athlete, ever. Venus wore her designs at the Olympics!
Confused by the name? No fret, Williams explains that, “EleVen is better than ten,” in a press release. To her, the name represents being better than the best. From fighting Sjogren’s, an autoimmune disease, to breaking records left and right, Williams is a testament of just that.
Did you know that in addition to being one of the world’s top athletes, she’s also a graduate of the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale with a degree in fashion design? Drawing inspiration from her love of art and watercolor, she has created a collection that echoes all that while staying true to her famed style.
The collection includes tees, leggings, tennis skirts and dresses, shorts and even polo shirts for guys. The prices are reasonable, with prices starting at $38 for a tee to $98 for the limited edition Olympic tennis dress. Williams will be debuting EleVen at New York Fashion Week this fall. However, you can add something to your closet now by shopping on her site.
