Venus goes to the next round in the U.S. Opens and reports, she also launched her new clothing line.

*Shortly before beginning play this week in the U.S. Open, Venus Williams attended the official launch of her fashion line EleVen at retailer Steve & Barry’s in New York.     

      The store partnered with Williams in the creation of the 120-piece collection, the largest ever launched by a female athlete.      

      The line includes nine styles of athletic footwear in a variety of color ways, track suits, fleece outerwear, street active apparel, graphic t-shirts, puffy down jackets with removable sleeves, denim jackets and jeans, velour items, tote and gym bags, jewelry, sports socks and bras.      

     I’m rooting for Venus on and off the court.

  1. I really liked the tennis dress that Venus wore during her first round match of the open. (Was it lavender or maybe turquoise?) Not quite as fond of the booty shorts. 🙂

    I love the black and hot pink dress that Serena is wearing this open. It looks elegant and she’s wearing it in the right size so it looks fabulous on her.

    I like a lot of the pieces in SJP’s line. I think what I like most of all is that she’s made it accessible to everyone. It is priced right and comes in a wide range of sizes.
