Venus Williams set to relaunch fashion range

Washington, Tue, 20 Mar 2012 ANI

Washington, Mar 20(ANI): Venus Williams is ready to relaunch her collection of sports and leisure wear - called EleVen - at this week's Sony Ericsson Open tennis tournament in Miami.


The 31-year-old tennis player, who took six months off to seek treatment for autoimmune disease Sjogren's syndrome, will also return to court this week.


She explained her thinking behind the designs.


"EleVen is really about being better than a 10. It's bringing your personal best which makes you an 11, and not accepting the standards of what is considered the best," Contactmusic quoted her as telling WWD.


"It's overcoming defeats and being a champion in life. If you don't look good, you won't play well," she added.


The label was originally created for chain store Steve and Barry's, which went into liquidation in 2008.


Williams, a seven-times Grand Slam singles winner, has worked with Ralph Lauren and earned a degree in fashion design from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. She says the range was inspired by her own attitudes to style.


"EleVen is about being yourself. I don't like to be told what to wear and how to look," she added. (ANI)
