Venus Williams launched her EleVen fashion collection in the end of 2007 and it was being sold exclusively at Steve & Barry’s. However, the company went bankrupt the following year and EleVen was left alone.
Venus has now come out with good news during a Q&A for Sports Illustrated, saying that EleVen will partner with the Gilt Group:
As for EleVen, this is really somewhat breaking news, but I will be partnering with The Gilt Group over the next year to host exclusive quarterly sales of the EleVen collection on Gilt.com/EleVen. The first sale is coming later this month before the US Open. You will be able to find out the details, which are coming soon, on my website, Twitter and Facebook. We are also in advanced discussions with a retail partner and as soon as next summer you will likely be able to find EleVen at traditional retail outlets.
