Beckham takes risks with new range

Victoria Beckham has revealed that she is a more confident designer

Victoria Beckham has revealed, five seasons into her fashion brand, that she is a more confident designer and a more confident person.

And she admitted this had allowed her to take risks beyond the structured cocktail dresses that gave her cred with a famously finicky industry.

For her New York Fashion Week presentation, Posh Spice wore one of the loose, cashmere cocoon dresses that she said she found intimidating when she was more of a novice.

The swing trapeze dress and a multi-metallic honeycomb in a caftan-like silhouette were also items she added to the collection with a surer hand.

These roomier designs take more work, but they are worth it so women can be fashionable - as well as comfortable, explained Victoria, her hair pulled into a long ponytail.

She announced last month that she and husband David are expecting their fourth child.

"I designed this collection before I knew I was pregnant," she said with a laugh to the small crowd of editors, retailers and stylists gathered at her favourite Upper East Side mansion runway venue that allows her to individually greet guests.

A red V-neck tunic dress looked the simplest, she said, but "it was a nightmare!"

For the first time, Victoria offered coats, including a red raglan-sleeve coat with a buckle at the collar and a super-chic black coat with knife pleats from hip to hem.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
