Serena seems to be beyond excited about her new venture. This was something she really wanted to do, to be able to design with no restrictions. She tells Glamour, “I wanted to have more creative direction and to do it by myself,” [and] “I was always working with HSN, which was wonderful and an amazing experience, but you're limited with a lot of different things. I wanted to do something that I went to school for and I have so many visions for. And now we're here.” Being able to have a vision and execute how ever you please is an amazing and liberating feeling we can all relate to.
The in the S by Serenacollection show were of all shades, shapes and sizes. Inclusivity is something that was important to her when executing her vision, and it is very much appreciated. She shares with Glamour, “I want everyone to have a chance. I think it's so important for everyone to feel like they can see an outfit and think, ‘Oh, that looks like me and I feel good in it.’ It doesn't matter what color they are. I want them to be able for them to relate to someone.” Not only were the models a diverse bunch so were there her star-studded guest, which included, Kim Kardashian West, LaLa Anthony, Ashley Graham, and Anna Wintour.
