Victoria Beckham says she gets emotional watching her Skype documentary


Victoria Beckham has opened up about the pressures and fast-paced nature of her life as a fashion designer, as she prepares to unveil a Skype documentary about her fashion label.

Speaking to WWD, the mother-of-four said she gets 'emotional' when she watches back footage from the film.

'I'm always so busy moving on to the next thing and I always want to do better than the previous season. I'm very ambitious and we move at such at a fast pace, so what's great about Skype is actually looking back at our story,' Victoria said. 'I get emotional actually watching it.'

The fashion designer has been filming everything that goes on behind-the-scenes at her fashion label for her upcoming Skype Collaboration Project, which will give fans and fashion enthusiasts the chance to see what goes in to creating a Victoria Beckham collection.

'It will be the first time that the people will really be able to see the brand through my eyes,' Victoria continued.

Victoria has been recording footage since she first began her eponymous label five years ago, which will really allow us to see how her brand has evolved. In just that short amount of time, Victoria Beckham's designs have gone from being shown to just a few, selected members of the press – to having a main slot on the New York Fashion Week schedule – and are regularly seen on the red carpet.

As well as her mainline collection and her sister line Victoria, Victoria Beckham, she designs eyewear and accessories. Not to mention the upcoming shop opening in west London, which will be Victoria Beckham's first standalone store.

Although some may have doubted the former Spice Girls star's fashion credentials when she first started her label, Victoria always knew it would do well.

'I did believe in creative visualisation and I always had high hopes. I believed what I was doing and I think I have a strong point of view. I always hoped. I like to look at the big picture and I like to build things in the right way. I never went into this thinking that it would be a flash in a pan,' she said.

The Skype Collaboration Project launches later this month. Clear your diaries, girls...
