From Posh Spice to Fashion Maven: Beckham, 10 Years in the Making

Every 90s child remembers singing along to the famous words “If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends.” If you don’t remember that, welcome back to Earth. Prim and proper Posh Spice of the 90s toured the globe with her girl gang making the world much spicier, but who knew that she would transform into the fashion icon we all know her as today: Victoria Beckham.

Victoria Beckham was known for her bold looks as well as being the best dressed of the Spice Girls. Her natural talent with style made her transition from music to the lavish world of fashion rather seamless. With being a mega pop star, and starting off her fashion career as a model for big names such as Dolce & Gabbana and Roberto Cavalli, Beckham pretty much had it made. With designs constantly swirling in her head, her debut collection was released in 2008. Her looks featured body hugging, skin tight pieces that took some people’s breath away… literally.

It has been ten years since her debut collection launched, so where has Beckham gone today?

Beckham has been unstoppable in the fashion industry ever since her first collection. For this year’s first New York Fashion Week, Beckham debuted her Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear collection and it was quite a departure from the Beckham designs we all know and love. Although Beckham has been subtly transforming her brand for some time now, it has never been anything as dramatic as this collection.

As models made their way down the catwalk they were all adorned in fabulous but loose fitting and baggy garments. Though Beckham did keep some elements of her typical designs by using belts and waist cinchers, close to all of the garments flowed and draped onto each model. She did still continue to use the classic neutral colors and perfect tailoring techniques that we all know of her designs.

Although Beckham has shifted into a new direction, her looks still embody who she is today and are still a necessity for every classic woman’s closet.
