Venus Williams launches “EleVen” at New York Fashion Week [photos]

Venus Williams debuted the spring collection from her EleVen clothing line at New York Fashion week with a unique spin. Instead of doing the typical models on the catwalk, Venus used athletes to showcasing the clothing line in its authentic state.

“It was important to show the clothes in the way I wanted to see them shown,” Williams explained. “It’s all about moving and it’s all about moving in style — looking good and feeling well. This whole concept really brings that to life.”
