It’s official – the Beckhams are coming home to London. Victoria Beckham has called time on their lives in Los Angeles to focus on her career, which is firmly based in the UK capital. Worn out from juggling her designer duties and mother responsibilities, the fashion mogul is said to have pulled the plug in LA based on her desire to be closer to her brand’s headquarters in London’s Battersea according to insider reports. Victoria spoke candidly with the Mirror during a 2012 interview, telling the publication “I have a lot on my plate. I’m not going to lie about it, I’m tired.”
Victoria Beckham Collection to Appear at London Fashion Week?
Her move back to Blighty has tongues wagging as to whether the successful designer will show her collection at London Fashion Week. Hotly anticipated high profile labels already signed on for the February line-up include Issa, Erdem and Burberry; leaving all eyes on Victoria Beckham, who has yet to confirm whether she’ll add her own couture to the mix.
Victoria Beckham has become one of the UK fashion scene’s household names in the trail of her unprecedented success. Establishing herself as a well-respected and sought-after designer, Victoria’s designs are now worn by the world’s biggest A-listers, including UK royal Kate Middleton. Rumors are circulating that Victoria has even been asked to create custom maternity outfits for Kate Middleton, joining Alexander Queen in line for the coveted role of clothing the stylish Duchess during her pregnancy.
At the close of 2012, the Beckham’s showed that they are a fashion force to be reckoned with. Not only did Romeo Beckham make his modelling debut for Burberry, but the collective Beckham brood was named most stylish celebrity family. That’s a whole lot of fashion cred right there. And with Victoria Beckham winning fashion awards left, right and center, the designer seems to be on a one way track to becoming one of the biggest reinvention stories of the decade.
Dream Store on the Horizon for Victoria
With 2012 ending on such a high note, 2013 is already looking to be a big year for the former Spice-Girl-turned-fashion-designer. The British and WGSN Fashion Award winner has revealed plans to expand her self-named fashion label with the launch of a PRADA-inspired fashion store in Knightsbridge. According to a source, opening the store will be a dream come true for Victoria, who has also hinted at the launch of an e-commerce website ahead of her Spring collection.
Victoria Beckham will finally be able to move forward with her plans now that her family is said to be renting a lavish $20 million property in South London. With David Beckham reportedly focusing his attention on “supporting Victoria and getting the family settled back into life in London,” the Beckham matriarch is free to take the helm as the UK’s number one fashion designer in 2013.
