Congratulations to Victoria Beckham who has won the Designer Brand Award at The British Fashion Awards 2011!
There's no doubt Victoria's a worthy winner of the accolade for 'a leading British-based designer brand that has excelled and made an impact on the international stage over the past year'. Her stellar year began with another collection for Autumn / Winter 2011 followed by an equally critically-acclaimed show for Spring / Summer 2012 in September. She then released Victoria by Victoria Beckham, a range of gorgeous girly dresses available for more accessible prices. What's more, VB designs have been seen on red carpets throughout the world, sported by an array of A-list stars from Kate Winslet to Cheryl Cole and Demi Moore. Just last month, we heard sales for VB’s fashion line are up more than 70% and she pocketed a whooping £15 million in the first three months of 2011. Wowee. Mrs Beckham's personal life has seen a number of highlights too — she attended the Royal Wedding with her hubby David before giving birth to her first daughter, Harper Seven. And considering Victoria was up for this award against designer heavyweights Burberry, Tom Ford and Stella McCartney, this BFA win really is the cherry on the cake.
So what's next for Lady B? Well, Victoria is set to launch a kidswear line after being inspired by Harper's oh-so-pretty frocks. Viva Brand Beckham!
