Victoria Beckham wants to make the move into shoes
Fresh from the success of her catwalk show in New York, Victoria Beckham is already thinking about how her ever-growing fashion empire is going to evolve next.
Speaking to a group of 800 students at an event during New York fashion Week, Fashionista.com reports that VB revealed that she wants to work on a shoe collection next – and she's looking for any budding shoe designers to help her.
'You know, I do want to start a shoe collection,' Victoria told the audience. 'If anybody here is a shoe designer, please do come and see me!'
'I definitely think shoes is probably the next category that I’ll look at going into; it’s quite a competitive category but I would love to go into [it].' the mother-of-four continued.
'I actually work with Manolo Blahnik on the shoes for my show every season and working with him is remarkable. I think it’s very complicated… '
Victoria Beckham is known for living in sky-high heels, but yesterday was one of the rare occurrences she was spotted wearing something at the sensible end of the shoe spectrum. Stepping out in a pair of monochrome brogues as she left her New York office, Victoria looked the picture of chic sophistication – and was clealy taking influence from her AW14 collection, which saw all the models wearing mannish lace-ups on the catwalk.
'I wouldn’t just want to do a signature shoe — I’d have to make sure I’m working with the right factories, do a flat,' Victoria said of her possible shoe collection.
If they look anything like the ones she was wearing, we'll definitely be her first customers.
