Fashion shows need a lot of work: Serena Williams
Tennis superstar Serena Williams has said that she would have loved to be a full-time designer but she feels fashion shows need a lot of work.
The women tennis icon, who has been crowned Wimbledon champion seven times, says if she were not a successful tennis player, she would have wanted to pursue a career in the fashion industry and design her own fashion range, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“I’d be a fashion designer. I’ve played Wimbledon, I played the Open, I’m playing tournaments in between designing. When you work on the shows, it’s not like it takes two weeks.
“It’s a four, five, sixth months’ commitment. It is a lot of preparation. All of the looks — pairing it, first, last, finale, middle… music. It was a lot,” ‘Vogue’ magazine quoted Williams, who has also her own clothing line, as saying.
Williams has been running her own label Aneres, which is her first name spelled backwards, since 2004.
Meanwhile, the Michigan-born professional shared that she is obsessed with footwear and would love to raid singer Mariah Carey’s show wardrobe.
