Victoria Beckham has firmly established herself as one of the biggest names in the fashion industry, moving from quietly presenting small scale shows to opening her first retail space and putting on full catwalk events. Now, she has opened up on her career, customers and what she’s trying to achieve. On who she thinks buys her clothes, Victoria says it’s a woman who wants to look her best and enjoys a luxurious touch:

“I think that she’s a woman that wants to look good. Appreciates luxury. Likes fashion. I want to make a woman feel her best. I want to empower women.”

Victoria has used her Instagram to show off her funny side and she is only now realizing that people didn’t see that side of her before:

“People are probably surprised that I have a sense of humour. I like to take the mickey out of myself. As much as I take what I do very seriously, I also want to have fun. I like to poke fun at myself … And I think that surprises people.”

On what she’s setting out to do with her career, Victoria says she isn’t putting herself up against other designers in the industry and just tries to outdo herself:

“I’m not competing with anybody else out there; I’m just competing with myself. I never went into this to prove anything to anybody, other than myself.”

Commenting on how she approaches her career, Victoria says she loves to challenge and push herself further:

“I think if you’re too afraid of failure then you won’t challenge yourself, then you won’t move forward. I like to challenge myself.”
