Singer-turned-designer Victoria Beckham says she felt "quite naïve" embarking on a career in the fashion industry almost 10 years ago.
The 43-year-old singer and fashion designer launched her eponymous brand in 2008, but she admitted she was "not as scared" as she should have been when she started her label.
Speaking on the Vogue Forces of Fashion Panel, the Spice Girls band member, who has sons Brooklyn, 18, Romeo, 15, Cruz, 12, and six-year-old daughter Harper with her husband David Beckham , said: "I was very aware that people had preconceptions. I was a Spice Girl, I was married to a footballer, so I was aware, but I was probably (also) quite naive going into the fashion industry."
"I wasn't as scared as I would be if I went in knowing what I know now," she said.
But the creative mastermind has admitted she "put everything" into her "new career", which saw her set up her label with two assistants.
"I really put everything into this; it was a new career for me and I had a vision. I surrounded myself with the right people, which, when I started was just two people - one girl working with me on the design and another on the production. It was very different from what other people had done; I wasn't a celebrity with a licensing deal.
"It was all about being focused, honest, and doing it in an incredibly humble way," said Victoria.
