Victoria Beckham wants to create fashion 'empire'
NEW YORK (AFP) - Victoria Beckham, the one-time pop star who is now one of the most courted designers at the upcoming New York Fashion Week, says she has even bigger plans for her eponymous brand.
"I want to get bigger and bigger," the former Spice Girl told the New York Times ahead of the unveiling of her spring-summer 2014 collection during fashion week, which begins on Sept 5. "I absolutely want an empire."
Beckham, who was once only famous for her stint as Posh Spice and as the wife of footballer David Beckham, has come into her own since her first runway show in New York in 2008 took the fashion world by surprise.
Beckham told the magazine that she designs clothes she would want to wear herself, from chic, ultra-flattering dresses to her current fall line of masculine-influenced coats and body-skimming skirts and trousers.
