Tennis star Venus Williams has been getting a lot of eyebrow raises when it comes to her fashion on the court.
In a recent interview, Venus spoke about the outfits for her line EleVen come about. The ballsy dresser explains:
“During the design process I’m nervous about, okay, is that going to move and get in the way of my racquet? So when the dress comes and it doesn’t, then I’m excited…I try to represent what I think my personality is on the court. The second part is sometimes you just dream it up. Sometimes you can see a dress and say, Hey, I really like those slits, so let me put that in my tennis dress. Or I’m dying to do lace. How can we do that on the court and make it work?”
“Lace has never been done before in tennis, and I’ve been wanting to do it for a long time. So finally, you know, I’ve done lace. It’s fun to wear, obviously. For me, it’s fun to design something that seems to be so successful.”
We love the risks that Venus is taking on the court, it definilty creates some interest to those who do not generally watch the game. I will definitly be watching for the FASHIONS.
