‘We went out to dinner one night, and he said, “I saw that you put out a collection,”’ Beckham told ELLE US. ‘I felt embarrassed to tell Marc Jacobs that I—me, ex–Spice Girl, married to a footballer—was creating a fashion line.’
Runaway popularity with shoppers quickly allayed her concerns. Beckham’s clever way with body-conscious dresses and exclusive handbags has placed the brand on track to achieve $95.6m in earnings this year, ELLE reported.
Beckham attributes the line’s popularity to following her instincts. Her status as her own best model helps. After her recent pregnancy (with daughter Harper Seven, now five months old), Beckham slipped back into clothes from her own label in record time.
‘Oh, listen, I worked at it,’ she said. ‘I was breast-feeding, so I ate super healthy, and I worked out seven days a week. I wanted to burn all my leggings—I was adamant that by the time I went to fashion week I would be able to wear clothes.’
