Gorgeous husband. Perfect children. Huge fashion empire. Amazing shoe collection. (Shall we keep going?) Victoria Beckham‘s life seems picture perfect. But the star’s road from Spice Girl to designer was a bumpy one, and she worked hard to make it a reality. How hard, you ask? That’s what her new interactive collaboration with Skype is all about.
In the 60-second teaser for Five Years: The Victoria Beckham Fashion Story, Beckham opens up about her journey. “I’ve always loved fashion and I was that kid who used to watch my mom get ready and just think ‘Wow, you look amazing,'” she says in the voiceover, adding, “I always dreamed of designing my own collection. It was always my passion.”
Her experience has been about breaking down boundaries and stereotypes stemming from her early career. “I was a Spice Girl married to a footballer. I was trying to do something that no one had really done before.”
The project — which will be shared through videos, text, photo galleries and more — is a partnership with Skype, a tool that has become an integral part of the Beckham’s design process. “Most evenings I’m curled up in front of Skype speaking with my studio in London,” she shares. “But I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
