Serena Williams’ Signature Statement Collection HSN line was a spin on high fashion looks styled in simple ways. There were suede fringed jackets, fringed leather skirts, and the showstopper: a black fringed leather dress.

Serena and Drake continued their PDA at the event.


Drake’s diss song to Meek Mill ‘Back to Back’ was even played as the models walked the runway.

      Serena, one of the greatest athlete. Her clothing line is actually wearable and nice. Drake is addicted to strippers and f- them raw too. He and Serena is a quick phase. They are such an odd couple. Hopefully, they break up soon and Serena finds someone else.

    The clothes look good, simple and wearable. Love the belted asymmetrical black jacket and the black dress with the leather fringe detail in the back.

    Nice!!! Smart girl! Starting up something while is she still socially relevant, before age begins to creep in on her tennis life. BTW did y’all spy that butt?

    drake will never marry her neither will he get her pregnant.

    serena I love but pls u are not a designer. u have taken another hard working fashion designer’s slot at fashion week.
    this clothing line is a vanity project for u serena, there are designers who deserved this slot more than u. this is the only way they can show their work and sell some clothes to pay their bill. this is their only source of livelihood.

      She tell you say she wan marry Drake?

      She na qualified star and so she is entitled to vanity projects if she wishes! …and of course, we love her clothes!

      Well Bruno, she is a good example of an Entrepreneur, you can never depend on only one source of income.She is totally doing the right thing by having her own fashion line and she can decide to open her own shoe line tomorrow (another genius idea), so get ready to be amazed at someone who is actually having innovative ideas…………#WatchAndLearn#

    I love this collection. Some designers (home grown and abroad) need to take note. Simplicity goes a long way. Sometimes we are so obsessed with being bold and creative that we make silly unwearable things that only our friends and family will buy by force and wear once.

    But what is she wearing tho? It’s nice but just not for her.

    Serena’s dressing can be a bit tacky, so I was a bit scared. But this is awesome. Love it! Go girl. That white top is giving me life and the suede brown skirt. Woah. Nice fall collection

    If a Nigerian came up with these designs, We’d say they’re nothing new, copycats, etc. Now we’re all hailing Serena for calling what we’ve been seeing everyday “new designs”. Smh. Nice and wearable, but same old same old things we see on the streets. I mean, when has a simple black dress with thin straps become a masterpiece??? Nigerians and double standards.

    Seee muscle, she go beat drake if he f- up walai…

    Wow! really impressed by her collection, way better than that Kanye with the homeless people looking collection, and he is supposed to be trendsetter. Another Serena Slay
