Victoria Beckham reportedly “can’t wait” to teach hundreds of students about the garment industry at this month’s Vogue Festival and may even become a visiting professor at a UK design college.

The former Spice Girl climbed up the ranks of the fashion industry to create one of the most successful lines on the market.

Victoria will serve as a guest speaker at London’s Vogue Festival later this month.

Apparently the star is elated to contribute her knowledge to fashion hopefuls.

“Victoria can’t wait to share what she knows about the fashion industry. She has always loved fashion,” a source told British newspaper The Sunday People.

“When she decided to make a career out of it she had a lot to learn so she feels lucky that she had people to teach her. Now she thinks it’s time to give something back.

“She will be revealing all about the business and hand out advice to those youngsters who hope to have a career in the fashion industry.”

This may be the first in a series of lectures for Victoria.

It is rumoured she might serve as a visiting professor at famed publisher Condé Nast’s new college of fashion and design that is due to open in London.

“She is really hoping she can continue down the route of helping those attempting to make it in what is a really tough industry,” the insider said.

Victoria is set to discuss her work with British Vogue editor Alexandre Shulman at the Southbank Centre on April 28 as part of the Vogue Festival.

Models Daisy Lowe, Cara Delevingne and fellow fashion designer Michael Kors will also share their wisdom at the event.
