Tennis champ Venus Williams has signed on with Steve & Barry to design a fashion line of clothing and footwear. Venus will be wearing some of the items from her collection, “EleVen”, while competing at the U.S. Open, which starts next week.
The unveiling for “EleVen” was held at the Steve & Barry’s Manhattan Mall store in New York today, with Venus showing off some of the collection. The actual line will not be sold in stores until November, and there will be an exclusive “EleVen” section in all Steve & Barry’s locations. All of the items in the collection will retail for no more than $19.98.
Eleven is actually the address where Venus grew up in California.
Steve & Barry’s have lined up quite a few celebrities who have collections exclusively with them, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Amanda Bynes, and Stephon Marbury.
Venus is no stranger to fashion. She studied fashion design at the Art Institute of Florida and has already designed clothing that she’s worn on the court.
