Victoria Beckham Fetes Brian Atwood Wearing Her New Suit Collection
Lately Victoria Beckham has traded her favorite day dresses in for tailored suits on the red carpet, and now we've got the inside scoop on why: "I've started a capsule collection of tailoring. This is one of my suits," she told us at last night'sDinner With a Designer Celebrating Brian Atwood, hosted by InStyle and the Council of Fashion Designers of America. "I always design things that I love and I've been obsessed with tailoring—I love a great jacket." While Beckham admits the work is challenging, she's having a blast: "Coming from London, I looked at Savile Row with stars in my eyes. And so I worked with a men's tailor in Savile Row. [Tailoring] is about structure, getting the right shoulder and right waist. Everything is handmade and super flattering. It's been a tricky thing to do, but a lot of fun." No word on when the sure-to-be hot suits will hit stores though: "I haven't figured out how I am going to launch it as of yet."
