Tennis legend Serena Williams may have lost at the Summer Olympics and U.S. Open, but be clear: Her newest clothing line is winning at New York Fashion Week. 

 

On Monday, the 34-year-old debuted her third Signature Statement collection for HSN and looked immaculate doing so. Sporting a teased out coif, Williams stunned in this peach see-through lace frock, pairing it with a matching bodysuit, black heels and a gold geometric choker.

With Beyoncé and Sia playing in the background, models bopped down the runway showing off William’s fall line, which is a beautiful blend of sleek faux leather, shearling and fur, sweater dresses, long flowing cardigans and coats, tailored pants and even a few couture dresses. There’s also a jewelry line — Diamonds Unleashed — that Williams and designer Kara Ross created together that are big on gold cuffs, perfect for the fall and winter. Even better: The 42-piece collection is totally wearable, but still fashion forward.

Fabric was Williams’s biggest inspiration for her autumn collection, telling PeopleStyle, "It’s really all about the [way they] feel. I’m really romantic, so I was thinking of [things] you want snuggle, like the pink faux shearling jacket. And long pieces because I always want to look taller and leaner."

So what's in Williams's fashion future? The tennis icon says she dreams of a line dedicated to evening-wear and wedding dresses, but admits how difficult and time consuming that will be for her. 

“In school [at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale], I realized how much work that was, so at the end of school, I just got really smart and was like, evening wear is so intricate, and I love things that an everyday woman can wear and still feel good and look good, so I started [there]. But there’s still that evening-wear dream, you know?" she told PeopleStyle. 

Despite those obstacles, with Williams's tenacity and drive, we wouldn't be surprised to see a signature collection of gowns in the near future.
