Talk about a quick recovery. Just 72 hours later, Williams had to scurry on over to New York Fashion Week to organize and present her latest collection for her namesake brand, Serena.

Serena was there to showcase her Spring/Summer 2020 collection part of her own fashion line. "Felt so good to see ⁦‪@serenawilliams‬⁩ thank everyone with ⁦‪@OlympiaOhanian‬⁩ at the end of her first fully independent #NYFW show", Alexis wrote online after the successful show. Gayle King and Ashley Graham were also reportedly in the audience. Even #MeToo movement founder Tarana Burke, was there to see ace tennis legend Serena Williams walk on the runway.

Serena Williams is a professional American tennis player and has made her country proud by being the best at her game. The runway show in midtown Manhattan began with a lush brown trench-style coat, followed by a suit in the same fabric with an asymmetrical wrap skirt. In NYFW 2019 Williams displayed herself to be a fan of bold prints, in hues like purple or bright blue, or in black and white. Serena Williams Fashion show in NY also saw Hollywood celebrities La La Anthony and Kim Kardashian posing for pictures at the event.

But perhaps the most striking and creative sight on the runway came when two models wore the same outfit together, side by side, one in a plus size and one not - an effective statement about size diversity.

"We're having a red hot summer over @serena", Williams captioned a post on Instagram showing off the new design in an ad on Instagram with six women of all shapes and sizes, The Daily Mail reports. Burke praised Williams' runway for being truly diverse.

"No one in the world looks exactly the same", she says.
