By Leisa Barnett

Victoria Beckham: Hi everybody, I'm here at my computer in New York with Harper on my lap ready to answer all your questions!

Aléna Jeangrand: You are a very hard-working woman and you seem to be reaching every single one of your goals in life. What would be your once piece of advice for a girl who wants to make it to her dreams?

Victoria Beckham: Thank you so much, Alena. Stay focused and believe in yourself!

Stacy Rajarison: Bonjour Victoria! We've seen lots of celebrities wearing your clothes but is there someone (for whom you haven't design yet) that you would love to see wearing one of your design? Thank you.

Victoria Beckham: I really respect Kate Bosworth - she has a great understanding of fashion.

Brittany Porcek: What was your best fashion moment of 2012? Love you Victoria!

Victoria Beckham: Hi Brittany, showing my SS13 collection in September was really special – I was overwhelmed with the response!

Jorge Haro Serrat: Hola Victoria. How be the mother of 4 kids has modified your vision of bussines and fashion? love u.

Victoria Beckham: Hola Jorge. Being a working mother certainly influences my approach to business and my designs. That’s why I’m so excited to launch the new www.victoriabeckham.com later this month, the website will make it easier to shop for busy women like me with careers and children, online shopping is perfect.

Rodney Garza: Hi Victoria, given the great success that you've achieved thus far, what advice would you give to someone (like myself) who is trying to break into the fashion industry?

Victoria Beckham: Work hard, follow your heart and stay true to yourself!

Natalie Brammer: Which is your favourite design out of all of your dresses? X

Victoria Beckham: Hi Natalie! You will soon be able to see my new ICON collection (it will be available when the new www.victoriabeckham.com launches later this month). ICON includes many of my favorite dresses since I started designing the collection, but I don’t think I could ever pick just one!

Camélia Di-Maccio: Hello Victoria, here is my question; If you could pick 3 words to describe yourself, what would they be?

Victoria Beckham: Hi Camelia, the three words to describe me are mother, wife, designer. That’s what’s most important to me.

Monika Hajnal: Dear Victoria, how do you find the balance between work and being a mommy? I have a nine months old baby boy...Thank you so much!

Victoria Beckham: Congrats on the new baby, Monika! Every mother struggles with balancing work and a family. I focus and plan really thoroughly.

Dijana Šahmanovič: Is there a Fashion Photographer, that you truly admire, and would like to work with in the future? (Out of the ones left that you never worked with before).

Victoria Beckham: I have been lucky to have had the opportunity to work with some of the best photographers in the world. One photographer that I’ve never worked with that I would love to is Steven Meisel. I have respected his work for longer than I can remember!

Khairul Adeni: Hi my idol! What are you wearing today from head to toe? :)

Victoria Beckham: Hi Khairul, today I’m wearing Victoria Beckham jeans, Balenciaga t-shirt and glasses from my new optical collection.

Penny Preston Personal Styling: As a personal stylist I appreciate how the pieces in your collections flatter real women. What inspires you when you are creating your new collections? I wish you all best wishes for your on-line store and can't wait for the Icon collection! x

Victoria Beckham: Hi Penny, thank you! I design clothes I want to wear, staying true to myself and my customer but always having a strong fashion message.

Sarah Broad: Hi - I love your collections. They are glamorous and sophisticated yet simple and striking. Do you find it hard to achieve this balance - how long does it take you to finalise a specific look?

Victoria Beckham: That balance is definitely exactly what I aim for, so thank you Sarah. As soon as I wrap one collection I start designing the next. The whole process takes about six months and it still never seems like enough time!

Amanda Bergen: I'm so excited for the launch of your new web site! I heard that you left the US and moved back across the pond to London...do you miss it?

Victoria Beckham: I miss LA! I love America and am very excited to be in New York for Fashion Week, but I'm enjoying spending time in London. The boys are loving their new schools and we're all very excited about also spending some time in Paris over the next few months!

Samantha Taylor: Hi Victoria, how do you manage to keep hair accessories in Harper's hair?! I've a 1 and a half year old daughter-Livia, she just pulls them straight out. Would you ever develop a childrens clothes line? Thanks, Samantha x

Victoria Beckham: Hi Samantha, Harper has always had very long hair so has been used to it being pulled back to keep it out of her eyes since a very young age. I'm often asked about a children's clothing line, there are so many great brands already doing this - I would never say never though!

Maria Pachon Veliz: What is your fav song right now? Lots of love! Maria xx

Victoria Beckham: I'm loving Beyonce after her performance last night! Have you ever seen anything like it?!

GlamBeckhams Web: Hi, dear Victoria! I'm Anabella from GlamBeckhams blog. Ive been your fan since day 1 and you are such a beautiful inspiration to me! so I THANK YOU for all. My questions are: What fragrance are you wearing now and what is your favourite detail in this coming collection of yours? Thank you! Kindest regards x Anabella.

Victoria Beckham: Thank you so much! I've just bought a new fragrance from Comme des Garcons called Lily which I am wearing today.

Stacey Fierstein: Victoria, I think you are hilarious on Twitter! What's your favorite social media platform?

Victoria Beckham: Thank you Stacey! I so enjoy interacting with my fans on social media. I can't choose a favourite platform, but I'm very excited to launch Vine for videos during New York Fashion Week.

Victoria Beckham: Thanks for all your questions - have got to head off! Time to put Harper down for her nap and I'm off to the studio to prepare for NYFW show on Sunday! X vb
