Victoria Beckham’s fashion brand may not be profitable, but she got the respect she always wanted

So why has a woman with 28 million followers on Instagram and a fashion collection that has been admired by Anna Wintour and worn by celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow and Sienna Miller failed to break even? 

The pandemic was always going to be particularly brutal for a label we associate with sharp tailoring, tight dresses and high-end work-wear – and Victoria Beckham Beauty, which was launched in autumn 2019, was unfortunately timed.

How Coco Chanel changed the course of women’s fashion

Written by Marianna Cerini

Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel was one of the 20th century’s most influential couturiers. A milliner by training, she moved beyond hats to become a rebel and a trailblazer of the fashion world, creating a new sartorial style that freed women from corsets and lace frills by offering them sailor shirts and wide-leg pants instead.

“Nothing is more beautiful than freedom of the body,” she once said, and her designs lived by these words: Chanel’s silhouettes were fluid and androgynous, her designs loose and — in the case of her iconic little black dress, or LBD — democratic. She wanted women to move and breathe in her clothes, just like men did in theirs. Her work was, in many ways, a form of female emancipation.

Sunday marks 50 years since Chanel’s death, aged 87, though her legacy endures. As well as revolutionizing how we dress, she helped form
