Busy mum looks to family for inspiration

Victoria Beckham has revealed that her biggest fashion inspirations are very close to home.

The designer says many of her designs are inspired by hubby David Beckham, 37, and their four kids Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 10, Cruz, 8, and Harper Seven, 1.

My main line last season was inspired purely from one day when Romeo ran in from school and he was wearing a baseball shirt,’ says Victoria, 39.

I thought “that looks really cool” so I had a baseball theme running through the collection.

Also, the hats were inspired by David and him wearing beanie hats. So I’ve been inspired from being at home and being a wife and a mother.’

Busy Victoria, who says she’s a ‘control freak in a nice way’, admits she feels bad about leaving her family when she’s working.

Being a working mum you feel guilty every time you go out of the door when you have to work,’ the mum-of-four told fashion fans at London’s Vogue Festival.

I try not to travel too much unless it’s during the school holidays as I don’t like to leave them. The children are my priority.

You feel so torn, don’t you? If there’s a parents’ night or nativity play I plan everything round that so I can always be there.’
