Victoria Beckham just made a very strong statement at New York Fashion Week. The go-getting singer-turned entrepreneur shored up the Beckham family image with the successful presentation of her latest fashion collection.
Her fashion pieces were cool and laidback, a departure from her structural bodycon dresses. Victoria, also known as Posh Spice, dazzled audiences as models floated down the catwalk wearing her silk pleated dresses with pops of color and ensembles in rippling chiffon or semi-transparent mesh worn with tailored blazers.
The former Spice Girl, who turns 43 on April 17, was truly in her element. She decribed her fashion pieces, that were paraded down the catwalk in downtown Manhattan by lithe models, as “emancipation with optimism” and “feminine with a practical streak.”
Such buzzwords resonate with many women across the world, and are quite timely. The respected fashion designer has also appealed to a mixed audience of retailers, editors and critics every time New York Fashion Week comes around.
Team Beckham Prevails
David and Victoria Beckham have gone through ups and downs, including David’s recent email hacking that threatened to destroy his well-built image. Rather than being weighed down by the unfortunate circumstance, though (David’s camp claimed some of the messages were doctored and presented an inaccurate picture of him), Team Beckham went about their day-to-day activities with a winning attitude.
While celebrity mom was attending to the nitty-gritty of her fashion collection presentation, hunky dad David and the kids spent priceless bonding moments at the American Museum of Natural History. The baby in the family, Harper, looked quite grown up now and seemed to be having a great time with her father and siblings.
Proud Mom of 4
Just as Victoria has shown how important her family is to her, her hubby, as well as kids, make it a point to let her know how mighty proud they are of her, too. Just before New York Fashion Week unraveled, she shared a note from her four kids Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper wishing her good luck.
She wrote in her Instagram account, “Feeling loved this morning. I love you X Kisses from NY” complete with emoticons. It made many of her online followers comment how sweet and perfect her family is.
More Collections Unveiled
Victoria’s keen sense of fashion has led to a highly lucrative business venture that just keeps expanding. This February, she launched her new, extended shoe collection for 2017 –the Pin-Pump — and has promised to come out with more styles.
