Victoria Beckham Designs On Her Own, Without the Help of Close Friends Roland Mouret or Marc Jacobs

>> dVb is no more: Victoria Beckham has taken her denim and eyewear collections in-house to go with her four season-old dress line, and everything is now housed under the Victoria Beckham collection. Beckham, who just had up to 75 of her dresses stolen en route to Neiman Marcus in London for delivery last week, is serious about the designing thing.

Despite traces of Roland Mouret's aesthetic in her dress collection (and the fact that they're both backed by Simon Fuller's 19 Entertainment), Beckham insists all design decisions are her own.

I have utmost respect for Roland. I think he is incredibly talented. I love what he does. He’s a great businessman. When I very first started working on the dresses, he gave me advice when it came to putting my team together. He doesn’t have anything to do with the design of anything that I do. But he taught me about how to turn my dreams into reality, if you like. He told me I needed a production manager — he helped with that side of things. I do what I do, and he does what he does, and it’s incredibly separate.

And she's here to stay »She's quite set on building her brand without the aid of other designers, even those who are close friends:

When I came out with my first collection, I didn’t even tell Marc. Well, I felt a little bit embarrassed. He’s Marc Jacobs. What else can I say? I never really told him, and then we went to dinner and he said congratulations on all the reviews and the quality of my work. I’ve learned so much from him. I am such a sponge whenever I’m around him. He is one of the most intelligent, interesting people that I have ever met.

And she's not going away anytime soon. “I plan on still being here in 25 to 30 years’ time. It’s about doing things gradually and building the brand in a strategic way."
