Posh lauds Becks during teary acceptance of British Fashion Award

December 1, 2011 - London

Victoria Beckham, who recently bagged British Fashion Award for best designer brand, had a special thanks reserved for hubby David Beckham, who provided her with the much-needed courage to become a successful fashion designer.

Victoria was in tears when she accepted her award.

"Without David I wouldn't have had the courage to do what I'm doing," The Daily Express quoted her as saying.

In order to flourish, the 37-year-old has always needed to be part of an ensemble.irst it was the Spice Girls, the pop stars of their era and then it was as one half of the most famous couple in the country, after the Queen and Prince Philip.

The award came as a blow to all the snobs who thought that all Victoria knew about fashion was wearing it and to those who dismissed her efforts as something to fill her days with now that her singing career was over.

More than recognition of her talent for designing covetable clothes or for marketing them, this award marks the week when Victoria will not be considered as an amateur anymore.

After struggling through several unsuccessful stints in her music career, in 2008 Victoria made her debut as a designer at New York Fashion Week and has never looked back since then.

Fans of her sculpted dresses include Kate Winslet, X Factor judge Kelly Rowland, Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria and former model Elle Macpherson. For classical singer Katherine Jenkins, Victoria is her first choice for red carpet dressing.

At 36, David is also nearing the end of his playing years but it is Victoria whose profile is rising again independently of her husband and whose future looks more certain.

"I always dreamed this would happen one day," Victoria said.
