Serena Williams and her daughter Olympia walked the New York Fashion Week runway wearing the latest "S by Serena" collection. 

Straight from the US Open, Serena Williams moved on to another one of her passion projects, this time her fashion line.

"S by Serena" celebrated New York Fashion Week with its own star-studded fashion show, where Williams herself walked the runway with her two-year-old daughter, Olympia.

Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., looked a little shy as her mom carried her down the runway, but the tennis great made sure to keep her cool.

After all, she just revealed her spring and summer collection during the show, and the likes of Kim Kardashian, Lala Anthony, and Ashley Graham were there to see it.

An Inclusive Fashion Brand

Williams launched "S by Serena" back in 2018, and includes size-inclusive fashion pieces. The clothes are designed for women who "break traditions and boundaries," and are for every woman - mothers, daughters, sisters. 

A jack of all trades, Serena made sure to make pieces suitable for every personality. Her Spring/Summer 2020 collection includes color-blocking pieces with animal prints and glitters, and of course, the ever-so-popular lime green.

Models for her fashion show walked the runway in bright slip dresses and capes, which brings the neon trend in for another season. 

The 2019 US Open

Now that the US Open is over, Serena can focus her time on promoting her latest fashion collection.

After sweeping all elimination rounds at this year's tournament, the 23-time Grand Slam winner came up short during the finals.

Williams lost 6-3, 7-5 in her morning match against 19-year-old Bianca Andreescu from Canada, the first Grand Slam winner from the country. 

A Time for Reflection

According to Williams, she feels she has a lot of thinking to do after losing four Grand Slam finals in straight sets.

"I honestly don't think Serena showed up. I have to kind of figure out how to get her to show up in grand slam finals. I love Bianca, I think she's a great girl. But I think this was the worst match I've played all tournament. It's hard to know that you could do better. I don't even know what to say."

Thanks to her many businesses, Serena can take the time off that she needs from the sport that she's been dominating for years now, to think and bounce back in the best way possible next year.
