Luxury department store Harrods described the line as "the personification of style and modernity", and Italian Vogue contributor Giovanna Battaglia, summed up the unveiling in one word: "Brava".
During the show, Vogue's first lady Anna Wintour and David sat front row as Victoria aired the pieces she has been crafting over the past few months.
After such high praise from her peers, Victoria herself explained her latest line on her website. "I've strived to keep true to the essence of the line while incorporating new finishes and fabrics," she said.
"I'm excited to show knitwear for the first time, as well as the quintessentially British heritage materials of tweed, plaid and herringbone."
