Everyone knows that Serena Williams has acquired twenty one grand slams. But, only few noticed that she is also a champion in fashion designing. Yes, she is no ordinary celebrity-turned-designer. Instead, she has been quietly pursuing fashion design for years. For instance, imagine her boundary-pushing court style, and her two years of fashion school. She acknowledged her designing skills in the following words,
“I’m an unbelievable designer. I don’t know how I know and just do these things. I just start sketching and then I just know the colors and I always know the forecast. I know green and purple are going to be hot. I was born to be a designer. I worked hard to be a tennis player, I don’t work hard to be a designer.”
In 2009, she collaborated with Home Shopping Network (HSN) and launched a collection with a huge success. They named the line ‘Signature Statement’. In addition, the collection included handbags, jewelry and apparel with a range from $16.50 for the Signature Statement Rings of Bling Drop Earrings up to $99.95 for the Signature Statement Flowing Floral Reversible Maxi Dress.
Last year, she presented her HSN Signature Statement collection for the second time at the New York Fashion Week Show. Williams called this collection a little bit retro, romantic, and extremely innovative. Even better, the fringed suede jackets and dresses are decidedly posher than your typical HSN fare, and the shearling pieces are expected to retail at a luxury price point.
