"It's the evolution of the line. It's bigger than the first season and I'm trying to offer more pieces to fit more people," said Venus Williams, as she showed off her fall Eleven tennis collection in New York Monday. The line includes colorful tennis dresses, "Love Game" jackets, flutter skorts, shorts, pants and tops.
The collection has expanded beyond the tennis court into fitness as well. The line features jackets you can wear to work out it, as well as break pants and leggings. "I want to encourage a healthy, active lifestyle," said the 32-year-old tennis star.
As for her tennis career, Williams said she will continue to play in the majors. She's currently ranked at number 20 and is looking to move up. But she is equally passionate about her blossoming design career. "I'm trying to make the best use of my time," said Williams. Eleven is currently sold to tennis and specialty shops, sporting goods retailers and resorts, as well as online.
