Earlier this week Victoria Beckham launched a commercial for her clothing line and last night she flew in to London to attend a private preview evening at Selfridges. Victoria was zipped up for the evening in one of her own designs which she teamed with killer heels and classic quilted Chanel handbag. She first unveiled the line as part of New York Fashion Week but this morning reports suggest that it has already sold out.
To hear what Victoria has to say about the dresses just read more.
The dresses are priced between £650 and £1,900 with no expense spared, even on the zips! "I knew I would spend a lot on the best-quality zips because, like many women, I've had my share of crappy zips," she told The Times, "I wanted a zip that undoes from both ends because then you can either put the dress on over your head or, if you don't want to mess up your hair, you can step into it - and also, you know, going to the loo wouldn't be this whole big palaver.”
She justifies the price tag further adding, "because in these recessionary times, and at these prices, women are looking for something that will be an investment, aren't they?". She gained assistance from Roland Mouret with the collection although he claims that he only helped her to find her a pattern-cutter and seamstress
Victoria discusses the stereotypes in the Spice Girls and how they all played in to their characters. However she confesses, "I had a little black dress that everyone said was Gucci, which it wasn't - it was Miss Selfridge."
It's good to see her getting some positive press as I always feel that Victoria gets a hard time but am naturally sceptical about a celebrity line. Admittedly, she isn't trying to claim to actually draw the clothing. "Do I draw? No. Then again, nor do lots of designers." The proof is most definitely in the pudding!
