Victoria Beckham's 'gentle rebellion' at London Fashion Week

Victoria Beckham's 'gentle rebellion' at London Fashion Week

Talking to CNBC's Tania Bryer on Sunday after her fashion show, Victoria said of her kids being online: "You know, I think that we're a really close family".

London Fashion Week has been a more subdued gathering this year, with many Chinese attendees absent because of the coronavirus, but crowds packed into Beckham's chosen venue, the neo-classical Banqueting House, Whitehall in central London.

The former Posh Spice mingled with the audience after the show, dressed in a white silk blouse and black high-waisted pants.

One of the big takeaways was that the designer has clearly fallen back in love with heels, choosing stacked-heeled boots that came scrunched to their wearers' legs. Now that her three sons, Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 17, and Cruz, 15, are all on social media, Victoria has admitted that she finds it "a little bit scary", especially as a parent.

The fashion industry as a whole is facing a problematic few months if restrictions on travelling and working continue in China, the world's largest producer of textiles. "To be subversive yet sophisticated", the designer said in her collection notes.

"We have been finding partners like Business of Fashion China to push that content out", Rush explained, adding that content would also be promoted on Chinese social media platforms such as Weibo and WeChat.

She has since gone into cosmetics with Victoria Beckham Beauty, teaming up with Sarah Creal, a former Estee Lauder executive, who she met in 2016 during a joint launch.

Lower Chinese attendance is potentially a major blow for fashion brands since Chinese spending accounted for a third of luxury global market sales in 2018, according to Bain & Company.
