Walking on sunshine…
In three years Victoria Beckham has established herself as a design force to be reckoned with. For The Whatever The Weather Issue, i-D hooked up with the popstar turned designer to eat cake and discuss her stellar spring/summer 12 collection, LA life, and Harper Seven, the best dressed baby in Hollywood.
“When I started it was all about the corset dress. That’s what people associated me with, and possibly if I’m honest a sign of my own insecurities as well. But the older I get and the more comfortable I am in my own skin, the more I realize that to look great and feel great I haven’t always got to wear something tight.”
“I’ve stood on many a red carpet and been photographed from every angle, so I know how important it is for a dress to be flattering.”
“I don’t follow fashion and I don’t follow trends, I just follow my instincts and think what do I want to wear? What am I feeling for next season?”
