Victoria Beckham to launch shoe collection

The 39-year-old was speaking to 800 students at New York’s famed Parsons School of Design when she revealed her plans to expand her fashion empire.

"You know, I do want to start a shoe collection," she said. "If anybody here is a shoe designer, please do come and see me! I definitely think shoes is probably the next category that I’ll look at going into."
While excited about the prospect of footwear, the former pop-star, who has recently been sporting some uncharacteristic flats, confessed she’s slightly intimidated by the venture.
"It's quite a competitive category but I would love to go into it," she said. "I actually work with Manolo Blahnik on the shoes for my show every season and working with him is remarkable."

Beckham has surprised many by carving out an impressive fashion career since launching her label five years ago. Her recent women's wear collection was met with praise for quality tailoring and bold minimalist looks.
The show was not only attended fashion fans, like US Vogue editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour who sat front row, but also David Beckham and the entire Beckham brood who turned out to support their matriarch.

The Beckham boys, Brooklyn,15, Romeo, 11 and Cruz, eight, obviously looked uber-handsome at the event and with such stylish sons it’s no wonder proud mum Victoria is keen to also dabble in designing some menswear too.
"I'd love to do menswear at some point, absolutely," she said. "I get very inspired by menswear- [my spring 2014 collection] was very inspired by men's tailoring, and there’s the boy-meets-girl fashion message throughout the whole collection.”
The Beckhams have been paparazzi favourites this fashion week.
But when asked if hubby David would consider modelling the future men’s line Victoria joked “He's a bit busy modelling underwear at the moment”.
