The tennis star turned fashion designer put on a show that included accessible and versatile pieces, created for the woman on the go. Models of all sizes walked the runway in a leopard print silk dress, brown suede separates, a neon trench coat, black velvet striped leggings and an ombre sequin jumpsuit, amongst other standouts.
Unfortunately, Williams' best friend Meghan Markle, who was recently in New York to support her at the US Open was not in attendance. However, we think she would have been a fan of the black and gray plaid blazer dress and the belted trench dress.
According to show notes, the looks were inspired by Williams' combined love for fashion and supporting “women who turn doubt into confidence and feat into courage.”
“S by Serena is for women who, like me, believe in something and believe in themselves, and who won’t settle for anything less,” Williams wrote. “We work hard and give no less than 100%. We defy the odds of our humble beginnings. I am so proud of this collection.”
At the end of the show, Williams made her way onto the runway with her daughter, Olympia, to thank the crowd.
Williams’ celebrity friends and attendees included Kim Kardashian, Anna Wintour, Ashley Graham, Gayle King, Dascha Polanco and La La Anthony. William's husband, Alexis Ohanian, who recently made headlines for his own fashion choices at the US Open, also watched proudly from the front row, taking pictures and videos of the show.
The S by Serena runway collection will available for purchase on serenawilliams.com starting Wednesday, Sept. 11 through Sunday, Sept. 15, where everything (except for a few coats) is priced below $200.
