I am a big fan of Victoria Beckham, granted she wasn’t the best singer in the world, but come on I think we can all agree that fashion was certainly more her calling, and I am loving this insightful video that she has realised as part of her ambassador duties for the GREAT campaign, which promotes the UK abroad.
In this video Victoria shares her thoughts on what she believes makes Great Britain so special, discussing everything from fashion to music, yes she did put the Spice Girls up alongside names like Oasis and the Stone Roses, as well as sharing the fact that David can’t dance, and how Anna Wintour is the most respected British woman in fashion.
Victoria also shares her love and memories for Camden Market, why she wanted to become a fashion designer, why her line is based in Britain, and my favourite part is when she discusses The Queen.
“The Queen is an icon. She’s so appropriate and very very chic – I mean, she’s the Queen!”
Taking about her fashion line, Victoria added:
“I want to empower women, I want to make women feel good about themselves and for me to be able to achieve the quality that I want to give my customer, I have to do that in London. My brand is British, my team are all British, you can feel the energy as you’re driving through London.”
When it comes to the Great British fashion brands, I do think that Victoria Beckham deserves a place alongside these names:
“In Britain we have some incredible brands, when you look at Burberry, Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen, Mackintosh, Hunter – we have really cool, quality British brands and I’m really proud to consider myself one of those.”
Looking amazing in one of her own designs this is most naturally I have seen Victoria in a video, and I love it when she giggles and asks “is that me?” when a drawing of herself in one of her hand-to-ear poses is shown. It is also nice to hear that even though she lives in America she is still very proud to be British!!!
So what makes you proud to be British?
