Days after a major upset at the U.S. Open, Serena Williams put on her fashion hat to present her brand new “S by Serena Williams” collection during New York Fashion Week. Rena is no stranger to NYFW since launching her line last year. This year featured a new face: Serena’s adorable daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.!

 

 

The tennis superstar brought her 2-year-old daughter, who celebrated a birthday at the beginning of the month, out with her to close the show, making her making her fashion debut.

"It's really important for me to be all-inclusive. I really love the word inclusivity and not exclusivity — I think that's just better,” Serena told Glamour backstage. "I think it's so important for everyone to feel like they can see an outfit and think, ‘Oh, that looks like me and I feel good in it.’ It doesn't matter what color they are."

The 37-year-old tennis player rolled up on the red carpet in a black laced top, a snakeskin mini skirt and Nike sneakers.

 

“I want this to be a celebration of women that turn their doubt and fears into courage and inspiration, that take those moments where they’re afraid and turn them around,” Serena continued. This mission is echoed in the show notes that accompanied this collection, where she writes that it was made for “women who break traditions and boundaries...unflinching women of all colors and sizes.”

Of course, Rena's husband Alexis Ohanian was there to show support.

Looking goodt.

“I wanted to have more creative direction and to do it by myself,” Serena told Glamour. “I was always working with HSN, which was wonderful and an amazing experience, but you're limited with a lot of different things. I wanted to do something that I went to school for and I have so many visions for. And now we're here.”
