Serena's designs were created to celebrate women who turn fear into courage and doubt into confidence and to show diversity of all colors and all backgrounds and all sizes

Three days after her loss in the US Open final, Serena Williams went from the tennis courts of Flushing Meadows to the runway at the New York Fashion Week.

Her shock loss to Canadian teen Bianca Andreescu in US Open final put behind, Serena was at the fashion week in the Big Apple to present the latest collection of her fashion label, S by Serena Williams.

Serena's designs were created to celebrate "women who turn fear into courage and doubt into confidence."

And she walked the ramp with her two-year-old Alexis Ohanian Jr in her arms, as she made her traditional post-show bow, wearing a snakeskin miniskirt that she designed.

According to AP, the 37-year-old's collection had bold prints, in hues like purple or bright blue, or in black and white. And she is also clearly partial to bright colors, as in one hot pink ensemble that was part midriff-baring pantsuit, part long skirt.

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!

Williams was quoted as saying that she her intention was "to show diversity of all colors and all backgrounds and all sizes -- just beautiful women."

The tennis ace's star-studded fashion show included celebrity guests Kim Kardashian West, La La Anthony, Ashley Graham, Dascha Polanco and husband Alexis Ohanian.
