New York Fashion Week: Victoria Beckham?

Since when does Victoria Beckham design clothes? Clearly I've been behind the fashion news, because Mrs. Beckham launched her first fashion collection at New York Fashion week which she based on her own personal style. There's only 10 styles in the whole collection, and prices range from 600 euros to a hefty 1900 euros. Personally, I wouldn't be caught dead with anything that has the label "Victoria Beckham" on it, but after seeing her lovely designs- I might reconsider.

Made in luxury fabrics such as silk organza, silk crepe, gazar, taffeta, wool stretch and fine cottons, in a subdued colour palette of black, navy, cream, cobalt and flesh-tone, each dress is cut, seamed and contoured to within an inch of its hourglass life and features a long pink-gilt zip snaking straight down the centre-back seam . She wanted to ensure that every woman that wears this dress has great posture and looks great from every angle.
The dresses come in sizes 6-14 and are suitable for all ages. Her look is very prim, with things mainly ending at the knee, but at the same time they are very girly and sophisticated.

The collection is being made in London with a small atelier staff of less than five people.Only 400 examples of the entire collection will be sold worldwide and will be available from February. It will be called the Spring/ Summer collection. Victoria Beckham says that she based her designs on 40's and 50's inspirations.
