"After Wimbledon and before the Olympics, I was feeling some kind of way...I wanted people to come to my show and leave with more than just a fabulous coat," said Serena Williams -- yes, that Serena Williams, the tennis player with a serious passion for fashion.

You've seen her outrageous tennis ensembles on TV, and now, for the third year in a row, you've seen her very own collection, Signature Statement, by HSN, at New York Fashion Week.

Inspired by 1950s fashions, Anna Wintour and Beyoncé, it's no surprise that the tennis star created a collection nothing short of iconic.

As for the women she designs for, "That woman is from inside," Williams said. "She's a confident woman, she wants to be seen in a confident way and she wants to have fun. She's a woman that's described by the inside, not the outside."

Which is why she presented the Signature Statement line in a runway show accompanied by spoken word. See a brief excerpt of the narration below:

She is Woman
Confidence engulfs her
Love encompasses her
Pity moves her
Goodness embraces her
Her smile is as captivating as the sun
She never doubts herself
She is woman

"How often do you go somewhere and you're inspired when you walk out?" Williams asked us. "That's what I wanted to pass along to all women today."

Designed to excite and empower, the collection was also created with materials made to be flattering on women of every shape and size, resulting in uber-comfortable knits we'd like to live in.
