To celebrate her label’s ten-year anniversary, Victoria Beckham chose to show in London rather than New York. This anniversary was a special one, so it deserved a special show, with models from all over, representing her diverse clientele. The ex-Spice girl explained that the collection is all about women, with something for every single woman out there. While, in the past, Victoria Beckham has had a tendency to be a little one-tracked (one focus on dresses, another on suits, another on outerwear) the clever layering in the 2019 Spring-Summer collection gives us a chance to see the full range of her talents. Flattering looks layered coats and dresses over front-split skinny trousers, that featured prominently on the runway. True to her word, the collection is elegant, sporty and casual with the inimitable Beckham androgynous feel. Victoria Beckham proves without a shadow of a doubt that she can indeed design for every woman, or their every facet. She’s an ex pop star, businesswoman and mother of four, so no one knows better than Victoria Beckham what women need.
In 2008, Victoria Beckham launched her eponymous brand. At the time, the label’s aesthetics reflected the designer’s style, mostly bodycon dresses and pencil skirts. But as she matures, the fashion designer is slowly evolving towards a more pragmatic style, closer to the lives of modern women…and it’s a success. Three years after its debuts, the brand diversified its offer with shoes, handbags and sunglasses. The same year, the label launched its Victoria, Victoria Beckham line, and then won the "Brand of the Year" Award at the British Fashion Awards, outrunning designers such as Stella McCartney, Tom Ford or Burberry. Since then, Victoria Beckham continues to present her collections every season at New York Fashion Week, where she has now become one of the designers to follow.
Victoria Beckham first became famous as a singer of The Spice Girls. After acting as the face of a number of major brands such as Roberto Cavalli and Dolce & Gabbana, in 2004, the wife of soccer player David Beckham designed a line of jeans called VB Rocks for Rock and Republic. Two years later, the former singer created her own denim brand under the name dvb Style. Victoria Beckham launched her eponymous brand in 2008 after being mentored by the designer Roland Mouret.
