With New York Fashion Week approaching, Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice, reveals her secret to success.
Beckham is no longer simply known as Posh Spice, or David Beckham’s wife, but she is making a name for herself as a fashion designer. With her recent nomination as the designer brand of the year from the British Fashion Council, combined with making the front cover of The New York Times’ Sunday Styles section, Posh is certainly on a fashionable roll.
She revealed the one simple rule she follows to earn her success, “I don’t do anything by halves. If you’re going to do something, do it properly, I think. Otherwise there is no point in doing something at all.”
She tells Times that her philosophy helped her design her popular dresses, coveted by stars like Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez.
“I might get a piece of fabric and tie it around me, then ask an assistant to pin it for me. I’m not claiming to be a master draper. The bottom line is: Would I wear this?”
Even while Beckham insists that she has “a long, long way to go” as a fashion designer, her attention to detail has allowed her to succeed in earning the respect of fashion critics and retailers.
Posh tells Times that she also hopes to earn the respect of First lady Michelle Obama, saying, “I really would love to dress her.”
So while working with the rest of the Spice Girls on the musical, Viva Forever, Posh will be adding to her designs. What can’t she do?!
