Williams first launched her brand in 2019 with the intent of designing fashionable women’s clothing that was manufactured with eco-friendly methods.
Much of her output is influenced by 1990s fashion, and the athlete took special care in coming up with items that were size-inclusive for all women.
The tennis champion previously designed lines for sports brands Puma and Nike.

Williams is also known for having collaborated on several entrepreneurial projects with her husband, who co-founded Reddit.
The now-married couple first met in 2015 while trying to claim an empty table at a hotel in Rome that they were both staying at.
The athlete then invited him to Paris to spend time together later that year, and the two went on to begin a relationship, with an announcement about their engagement arriving in 2016.
The pair welcomed their daughter the following year and tied the knot two years after Olympia’s birth.

Williams spoke about how her role as a parent has come into conflict with her training schedule during an interview with People, where she noted that becoming active in the sporting world has become difficult.
‘I kinda love being a full-time mom and not having the responsibilities to travel and play but now that I’m training again, it’s become a lot,’ she said.
The tennis superstar also noted that her daughter has been listening to her mother manage her business life and expressed that Olympia may grow up to be a natural entrepreneur.
‘She’s in every single call that I have, every single meeting.. I feel like she’s getting a little bit of it so she’s going to be a really good businesswoman when this is all over,’ she remarked.
