Serena is a very amazing person worldwide.A unique individual, she represents greatness in sports and fashion for a diverse audience.
She remains authentic on and off the court.An exceptional blend of our worlds, she exemplifies originality in whatever she does.CFDA chairman Thom Browne called Serena a fashion icon.
Since I was a small child, I've used fashion to express myself. It gave me the courage to walk on the court and own who I was and where I was heading, Williams told Women's Wear Daily.
“My dream of owning S by Serena has come true, and I have had the privilege of working with the most incredible designers and emerging talent.
I've loved discovering my style and letting it vary as my life does, but I've always believed that fashion is for everyone, regardless of size, race, or budget. I'm thrilled to receive the CFDA's Fashion Icon Award and join style luminaries I've always loved.
Presented by Sarah Jessica Parker, the 2023 CFDA Fashion Awards will honor the top women's, men's, and accessories designers and the Shop With Google Emerging Designers.
