Victoria Beckham's key career advice

Victoria Beckham is one of our favourite British designers and now the former Spice Girl has some wise career advice for women.

She recommends getting a broad perspective on your field of work and as someone who has donned many a bold ensemble in her days on stage, she seems to know what she’s talking about.

“I always say the best way to advance your career opportunities is to try to get as much experience as you can in the field you want to enter,” said Victoria.

The 39-year-old mother-of-four is always back and forth between America and London, and she recently revealed that she was at her happiest when living in the United States (link).

“It was much more accepting for a woman to have a career, as well as a man. And I loved it”, she admitted.

The busy designer spoke to ELLE magazine and advised H2O was the key to remaining energetic at all times.
 
“Everyone is tired [at fashion shows] but full of energy as you are running on adrenaline. I always say drink as much water as you possibly can. Keeping hydrated is key.”

Victoria shot to fame as Posh Spice in 1996 with her girl band but became a key figure in the fashion industry in 2008 when she launched her own collection at New York Fashion Week.

The hugely positive reviews have ensured that Victoria’s runway shows are always hotly anticipated.

When asked about her favourite part, she admitted she couldn’t decide: “I only have a few minutes to present my statement for the season so every single element of those minutes is as important as the other. I love how everything comes together in one cohesive vision.”

And Victoria stays away from other catwalks during fashion week due to her hectic diary.

“I love looking at what everyone has done but I don't actually attend any other shows,” she revealed, before adding that she doesn’t even get to watch her show live.

“While my show is actually happening, I'm busy backstage ensuring every look goes out perfectly. So I snatch moments on the monitor but I'm not watching the whole show in its entirety. That happens afterward!”
