Venus Williams


What’s better than a 10? That’s the question that is answered by Venus Williams’ line of clothing, called EleVen. Launched as a collection of tennis dresses and sportswear in 2007, Venus recently re-imagined the brand and in 2012 released a line of ready-to-wear dresses, polo shirts, camisoles, capri pants, and men’s casual shirts.

Millions have people have already seen EleVen garments, as Venus wears her own eye-catching design each time she takes the court. A maverick in the fashion world, Venus purposefully eschews current trends in order to blaze her own bold path. For years she felt that sportswear design was too narrow, too dictatorial in how they would have athletes dress. She relishes the opportunity to express herself in what she wears.

“The whole philosophy of EleVen is about overcoming adversity and triumphing over anything while looking fashionable doing it,” says Venus.
