Long Tennis Veteran and The 23-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams (who returned to the French Open today) has announced the launch of her online store! (Can you tell how excited we are?)
The sport woman shared the news on her Twitter timeline, writing that it’s been something she’d been aspiring to do for so long.
She’d attended fashion school at 18, she shared, but since then has continued to receive “NOs” from people she pitched the idea of a fashion line to.
Finally, she continued, she realized she just had to make a go at it, and now, here she is.
See her tweets below:
They say life is about timing. I learned this lesson at age 18, when I chose to play a light tennis schedule because I wanted to go to fashion school. Some criticized my decision, but I knew I had two loves–tennis and fashion–and had to find a way to make them coexist.
