Victoria Beckham unveiled her latest fashion collection at New York fashion week, staging a series of small shows rather than one extravaganza.
It was an old-fashioned couturier's presentation held in a spare art gallery, with only bowls of roses as decoration.
"This is my third collection, and I wanted to push myself, but I also wanted to be respectful of my customer," she said. "I want her to know she can rely on me."
Instead of switching gears each season to meet the trends, as many designers do, Beckham has focused on a few key silhouettes, some of which are new, and some tweaks of dresses that have already been successful.
Her signature fitted dress now has a lower neckline, stronger shoulders and capped sleeves; the fold-front dress has a shorter hemline just above the knee.
