I really didn’t see this coming but I’m pleasantly surprised that Fashion Designer Victoria Beckham is turning her hands and designing a range of less expensive clothes for VB fans! Yes that’s right let’s all thank the fashion gods because Victoria is launching a new dress collection which will hit stores in Spring/Summer 2012. The “Victoria by Victoria Beckham” is a mixture of fun, girly dresses with a looser and more easy-going silhouette than her super pricey main line!
She took inspiration for the teenage cartoon character Emily the strange telling Women’s Wear Daily that, “These are the kind of dresses I’ve been searching for – the perfect summer dress, something that was fun, something that was girly, something that was easy to wear, something that would take you from day through the night” She adds, “I’m opening these designs to women and girls of all different shapes and sizes, people who maybe want something less tight, clingy and structured. It also makes it more comfortable for during the day. You can wear them with a pair of flats or a pair of heels and they look great“.
Notice how high heel fanatic Victoria adds flats as an alternative? Something’s definitely in the air! I actually really like the clothes but I’ll urge petite fashionistas to give it a try before making such a splurge. The Victoria by Victoria Beckham dresses are priced from £350 to £560. I love how she is not sticking to the size 6 norm and designing dresses for women with curves. Interesting move! What do you think?
