Venus Williams set for a comeback

Not only is she returning to the tennis court this week but Venus Williams is also making a fashion comeback with the relaunch of her clothing line, EleVen by Venus Williams...

Aside from her success on the court, Williams, who has a degree in Fashion Design from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale told WWD that she had always wanted to be a designer and unsurprisingly, specialising in sportswear.

‘If you don’t look good, you won’t play well,’ she said.

The seven Grand-Slam winner originally launched the EleVen line in 2008 and now with the Olympic games fast-approaching, it seems 2012 is the perfect year to mark her return to both the sport and fashion scenes.


So what can we expect from the collection?

Williams told , ‘EleVen is really about being better than a 10... It’s overcoming the defeats and being a champion in life.’

And with that fighting spirit, she intends to inspire fans with a range of tournament dresses and sport-luxe separates that she deems suitable both on and off court.

Set to launch officially this September, Venus will be keeping her fans updated on all EleVen news via her .
