Venus Williams put on an impressive showcase of her spring/summer 2013 tennis clothing line on Wednesday.

The American chose to debut the latest collection of her clothing line EleVen at New York Fashion Week.

Williams presented her sportswear line in an unusual fashion - known for her striking ensembles on the tennis court, the tennis champion stayed true to form by putting on a unique show featuring athletes wearing her clothing range on the runway.

Williams picked athletes including former middleweight boxing champion Michael Olajide and dance professional Mitchell Kelly to show off her line.

The sport stars also wore trainers from top US fitness studios Soul Cycle and the Tracy Anderson Method.

Williams explained more about her tennis collection at the unveiling of her designs, including where the name of her label came from in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.

"It's one better than 10," she said when asked about the origins of the name EleVen.
