I must check eBay or something to see if I can get an EleVen tshirt. I want some of Vee's brand in my wardrobe

Yeah, looks like she might not have been poached away but that the ties were severed. Here's the embedded tweet along with GSC's tweet:

I liked her men's line as brief as it was. It was very simple and classic. But it's also a harder market to sell to. Men do buy clothing less even now.

Re: ~EleVen worn by other players~

pretty much every athletic clothing player (nike, adidas, etc) makes their stuff available to the rank & file free. then they sign high profile fer $$$.

V is Eleven's high profile.

Oh gawd. Already that Kate Hudson started a yoga wear business.

I agree that Venus needs to try and get some up and comers to wear her stuff. She might have to rethink or revise the design style, though. It is somewhat conservative now. But maybe she can focus on that in 2017-18?

I imagine Venus may pay her athletes some amount, but it probably can't compare with a big name contract. At least, she has Rodionova for Australia, though. She just needs to get some Euros and North Americans to wear her stuff more regularly. However, I don't want her to focus on getting more players and tennis club players to wear her outfits if it conflicts with having a fantastic last season and a half or whatever it turns out to be.
Yes you're right. Venus is high profile enough to get the country club/tennis team set to purchase EleVen and that might spill over into regular folks looking for athletic wear. She's certainly the best model for her lines. She's been smart and maybe she's thinking that once she retires, then she'll sponsor another player in a more traditional manner

Re: ~EleVen worn by other players~

I've never been clear how Venus approaches girls to wear her line. Is she paying them like other clothing sponsors?

I hope she lands some new girls soon. Her prints and designs this season look great.
