Victoria Beckham Works with Her Design Team Over Skype, Revealed She Has Male Designer Friends Who Try On the Dresses They Make

>> Victoria Beckham spoke with Suzy Menkes at the IHT Luxury conference in London last week, captured on the video above. When asked how she works with her London-based team while living in Los Angeles, she replied: "Most evenings, I'm curled up in front of Skype, in my dressing gown, speaking with my studio in London. I travel a lot; my team travels a lot, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I'm very proud to be British, and my brand is British, and I'm very proud of that."

As for her design process: "I'm a female designer, and I'm designing for women. I've often asked friends of mine that are male designers — 'How on earth, as a male, do you design dresses for women?' Because how I work is I actually put the dresses on myself. I won't disclose any of their answers, but quite a few of my male friends have said that they do actually put the dresses on themselves. Because how else do you know how it feels?"
