How Meghan Markle influences Serena Williams’ fashion line. Not only is Meghan Markle a longtime friend of Serena Williams, but she’s also apparently her fashion muse.
Champion athlete Serena has opened up about her clothing line, saying that the Duchess of Sussex inspires the brand to be of the ‘highest quality’.
Speaking to Business of Fashion, she said: “It’s so fun because people are like, ‘Oh my God. Like wow, the quality is crazy.”
“Listen, if we’re giving our stuff to Meghan, it has to be the highest quality that we can get. So, that’s what I tell our team internally: ‘We have to make sure it’s super high quality that, you know, is fit for a royal princess!’”
While in Dubbo, Australia to visit farming families affected by the area’s two-year drought, Meghan wore a plaid oversized blazer from Serena’ line.
And it didn’t take long for the tennis champ to show her excitement.
Taking to her Instagram, Serena posted a picture of herself modelling the blazer with a big smile on her face, captioning the post: ““The face you make when you and Meghan have matching @serenablazers 😍
In an interview with PEOPLE last year, Serena spoke about her new fashion line, saying: “This collection is inspired by femininity and strength. It’s bringing those two together. Who said you can’t be both?”
As The Duchess gets ready to welcome her first child with Prince Harry, Williams also chatted to Business of Fashion about how she ensured her friend’s baby shower was everything she had hoped for.
“Planning something like that takes a lot of effort,”she told the publication. “I’m a perfectionist, so I’m like, ‘Let’s make it perfect.’”
