With a turnover of £30 million (S$63 million) in 2013 and positive reviews from the toughest critics, the Victoria Beckham clothing brand has gone from strength to strength since it was first launched in 2008.

In town last month for Singapore Fashion Week, the brand’s founder Victoria Beckham did not disappoint with her Fall/Winter 2015/16 collection, which included drapey, asymmetrical knits that were easy-wearing and elegant, with just a touch of edginess.

Fans hoping to get a good look at the English entrepreneur, fashion designer and former Spice Girl, however, might have felt a little let down by the fleeting glimpse they had of her: After the models took their final turn on the catwalk, Beckham came out to take a customary bow, before disappearing backstage quickly.

But that’s exactly where Beckham prefers to be these days: Behind the scenes, working on creations that have found favour with both consumers and critics alike. She has come a long way — not only from her pop-star days, but also, from being a fledgling designer with a debut collection of ten dresses.

Speaking to The Peak about her evolution as a designer and moving beyond the sexy, structured dresses that were her early signature, she said: “My team and I now have the knowledge to do (more) things. I didn’t in the beginning. I’ve had to learn.”
