Venus Williams 'plans intimate fashion showcase'

Venus Williams is reportedly set to give close friends a sneak peek of her new capsule collection.

The tennis star launched her EleVen clothing line in 2007 after receiving her associate degree in Fashion Design from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale.

According to the New York Post, the 31-year-old will showcase some of her newest designs from the line at the Bath Club in Miami Beach later this month.

Venus will apparently show friends including Inés Rivero, Ingrid Hoffmann and Alejandra Torres her latest pieces from the line, which features a range of clothing, footwear and accessories.

The publication also reports that Venus will soon launch a "US Open-inspired line" which will lead the way for a "full lifestyle collection coming in September".

Meanwhile, celebrity fashionista Whitney Port is launching a new line, WE by Whitney Eve.

According to People magazine, the budget-friendly line will be exclusively for Apricot Lane boutiques in America, and includes a five-piece spring and fall collection.

Whitney launched her own label, Whitney Eve, in 2008, and has achieved a great deal of success with the range.

The 26-year-old reality TV star recently showed her Fall/Winter 2012 collection at New York Fashion Week.
