Cheered by her famous family, Victoria Beckham brought a sexy vision of fall/winter to an intimate New York runway show and confided plans to open a second store in Asia.
The one-time pop star, mother of four and wife of retired English football superstar David Beckham, has won plaudits in the fashion industry for designing beautiful collections that flatter women’s bodies.
David sat front row holding three-year-old daughter Harper on his lap and chatted with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour after arriving with sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz all dressed in sharp black outfits.
Harper, dressed in a black frock with white cuffs and peter-pan collar, tried to capture the catwalk show with her own camera, perhaps inspired by the phalanx of photographers and delighting her doting father and Wintour.
Brooklyn, 15, chewing gum and dressed in black leather trousers looked effortlessly cool as he and his brother Romeo, who has modeled for Burberry, appeared to film the show discreetly from their cell phones.
Beckham summed up her collection backstage as sexy, liberating and full of bounce, after showcasing dresses with full skirts, textured knits with high necks and oversized coats with swinging bodies.
"It’s very important that all of these clothes can be worn. They can go straight from the catwalk onto one of my ladies," she said.
"It feels sexy this season in those dresses with the plunging necklines that are fitted with the little drapes."
She said that 2015 would see her spend a lot of time in Asia, where she plans to open a second store after the success of her Dover Street boutique in London.
