Serena Williams Reveals Inspiration for Her Williams Signature Collection
On Tuesday, only "Extra's" Tracey Edmonds spoke with superstar athlete turned fashion designer Serena Williams as she unveiled her Williams Signature Collection for HSN at New York Fashion Week.
Serena told Tracey all about the inspiration behind the 23 looks she presented with Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour as rumored boyfriend Drake sat in the front row (scroll down to see video of the pair backstage). "We were really influenced by neutral, our neutral palette... and also a little bit of fringe. We wanted to tell this whole story of fringe — fringe is sexy, fringe is classy, and fringe is fun, and it's modern and current."
Williams' line is made to fit all different shapes and sizes. She said, "My collection fits me and, you know, I'm not a stick... It doesn't matter what size you are, we want to send that message that you are beautiful, you are powerful, you are strong, and you can look amazing and love who you are."
She also debuted some accessories, sharing, "We have hats, we have glasses, we went all out this year.”
NYFW is a perfect way to see which styles are trending this year. Serena describes her own personal style as "mixing classic pieces with trendy pieces."
