 Miss Beckham shifted from the entertainment platform to an environment which was going to mark her designer life significantly. After the separation of the Spice Girls and trying out acting, Victoria found her calling in the fashion industry. She started as a model and walked her first show in 2000 at London Fashion Week. The model wore Maria Grachvogel signed pieces, which she declared she loved.

After a successful debut in fashion, Victoria moved to being an ambassador for Dolce and Gabbana and further collaborations with Rocawear in 2003. The audience welcomed her and embraced her style. Everyone knew Victoria now and it wasn’t long until she was going to start designing.

The young icon met David Beckham in Manchester and as she adds in her letter for Vogue it was “love at first sight”, although the details are hazy. “While the other football players stand at the bar drinking with their mates, you will see David standing aside with his family. (He’s not even in the first team at this stage – you are the famous one.) And he has such a cute smile. You, too, are close to your family, and you will think how similar he feels to you. He’s going to ask for your number. (He still has the London-to-Manchester plane ticket on which you wrote it.)”

As she adds in the letter she recognizes herself as a free spirit who always loved to explore and play with clothes. Although her choices now are far different from decades ago, Victoria is the same, but more mature and sophisticated. She developed a passion for sunglasses and switched from heels to Stan Smiths. Victoria embraced the grown-up life and reflected that in her collections.
