Athletes’ Fashion Lines
This 23 Grand Slam winner is more than just an amazing tennis player. While winning her championships, Williams was attending fashion school at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. Although she studied in the early 2000’s, she finally decided to launch a clothing line in 2018 in hopes of “empowering people to look and feel their absolute best”. The clothing line, S by Serena, produces everything from colorful cocktail dresses to body suits. Serena also launched her jewelry line in 2019 which is inspired by women and focuses on life’s milestones.
A 7-time Grand Slam winner, Venus Williams also attended fashion school alongside her sister, launching her own fashion line as well. EleVen’s goal is to “give women quality activewear” that makes them feel and perform great. The brand was created in 2007 and offers more than just activewear, such as beauty products, lotion, and face serum, to keep the skin glowing.
