The onetime Spice Girl has garnered critical praise and commercial success with her understated, modern take on womenswear.

Biography

Before she became a fashion designer, Victoria Beckham was best known to the world as a member of superstar pop group the Spice Girls.

Victoria married David Beckham, then a football star playing for Manchester United, and the two became frequent tabloid fodder for the combination of their personal wealth and camera-ready looks. The couple moved to Madrid, following David’s transfer to Spanish football club Real Madrid, and then Los Angeles, before returning to London.

During this period, Victoria had begun shedding her ‘Posh Spice’ image and, as well as writing several books and making appearances in documentaries, started designing bags, shoes and jeans for brands like Rock & Republic and Samanthan Thavasa. She also began acting as style ambassador for her designer friends, like Roberto Cavalli and Dolce & Gabbana.

In 2008, Beckham launched her own womenswear collection, a range of easy dresses and slim separates. The debut was met with positive critical reception. And in the years since, Beckham has expanded her brand into handbags, sunglasses and shoes. Unlike most other celebrity-designed products, Beckham oversees all production and design aspects herself and has successfully parlayed her personal profile into a high quality fashion brand. “I want to get bigger and bigger,” she told T magazine. “I absolutely want an empire.”
