The collection lined up draped tops and leather skirts, but more importantly it was Canadian rapper Drake's presence in the front row of the show that set tongues wagging.
The singer has been part of Williams' entourage for some time now with rumours suggesting that he's her boyfriend.
However, there has been no confirmation from either the tennis star or the pop star.

Meanwhile, when questioned about her US Open defeat and derailment of her quest for a Calendar Slam, Serena said that it was not a loss at all: "I've won four Grand Slam (tourneys) in a row, and got to the semis in another, and I've done that twice. How many people have done that?
So, it wasn't a loss for me, it was a win," said Serena, whose guest list at the high-profile event included influential Vogue editor Anna Wintour among other fashion heavyweights.
