It was February 2011 when Victoria Beckham got featured in British Vogue, giving us, probably for the first time, an intimate and pure look into her life. Journalist Lauren Milligan wrote: "Victoria Beckham may have appeared solo on the cover of Vogue six times before (plus once on US Vogue with the Spice Girls), but for her latest Vogue cover she reveals how her style has changed since becoming a designer - and inside she describes what it's like to wake up with David."
It was the first step for what many deemed as a silly move. Victoria had already written a book on fashion tips and she had been collaborating with some renowned designers who somehow gave her the strength and the necessary tips to work on the field. Then came the collaboration with Range Rover, where she was able to demonstrate her real potential as a future designer.
"Look, I don't draw, but nor do lots of designers. I tie things around me. I experiment with the ideas and try to work out a way to make everything flattering and make a woman feel beautiful." This mythical statement turned her iconic, as it reveals the simplicity and practicality of what she does. By following her career as a designer, we have more than one chance to check that motto. She always thinks about it to be worn, so that people can feel elegant, so that the costumer reviews himself in the product.
Victoria always reveals to be a little unsure of herself, getting often incredulous when faced with her own success. At the beginning, David was forbidden from entering the shows that were humbly performed at a hotel in New York, repeated whenever a journalist was late or could not attend the appointment.
For the first time, in 2013, David showed up in Victoria's runway show, but only and only because he had to take Harper, the clan jewel, to the presentation. In photos Victoria shared on social networks, we could see, before the show, a reserved seating for Harper and not for David, who mainly served as an intermediary. Victoria does it because she never wanted her success to be defined by a legion of her husband's fans, but for herself. And she got it. Today, Victoria is increasingly sought and listened as a designer and trendsetter.
At the end of the show for Spring/Summer 2014, we can see in the backstage film a very humble, nervous and excited Victoria. It is still her first show in New York Fashion Week, attended by the undeniable queen of fashion Anna Wintour and her beloved Harper, the designer's first daughter. A true victory for Victoria Beckham.
