The Fall collection embodies Novel Romance: a modern statement on classic knit dressing with a focus on a variety of textures including cables, ribs and heather effects. The result is a sophisticated and sexy collection that is modern and powerful, yet undeniably feminine.
Also featured at the show is Serena’s trend forward jewelry collection in collaboration with world-renowned jewelry designer, Kara Ross. The DIAMONDS UNLEASHED for SERENA WILLIAMS Collection consists of goldtone, silvertone and hematite, bronze-plated pieces such as a diamond accent bangle, a diamond accent knuckle corset ring and a double band choker, all designed exclusively in partnership with CanadaMark, Dominion Diamonds Corp.  Serena, who is one of DIAMONDS UNLEASHED’S distinguished brand ambassadors, worked in tandem with Kara Ross to create a collection that inspires women’s empowerment and supports the next generation of women.
"I had a great time developing the collection with Serena Williams. She is bold and not afraid to take risks, and the DIAMONDS UNLEASHED for Serena Williams collection encompasses this perfectly. Authentically beautiful, statement accessories that can be worn every day or for special occasions, the collection is sleek and polished and for the woman who knows exactly what she likes. Serena is beautiful, strong, multi-faceted and brilliant- all of the qualities found in a strong woman- and a diamond from DIAMONDS UNLEASHED," said Kara Ross, Founder of DIAMONDS UNLEASHED
