Victoria Beckham's celebrity fans are the Duchess of Sussex

Victoria Beckham has shown her first collection at London Fashion Week – 10 years after her label was founded.

For years, the Spice Girls singer chose New York's Fashion Week over his British rival. Her family was in the front row for the debut.

David Beckham said he was "so proud" of his wife, who hugged and kissed her four children at the end of the show.

Son Romeo, 16, posted a picture of the family: "Amazing Show Mom love you so much."

Stella Tennant was selected by Victoria Beckham to open the show

Her first collection a decade ago consisted of only 10 dresses.

This year's exhibition opened with model Stella Tennant, 47, wearing a white trouser suit, combined with a silk blouse and silver shoes, along a marble staircase at the Mayfair Art Gallery near Beckham's flagship store.

The designer had said she wanted to show "women and girls."

Red, black, cream and camel formed the core color palette of the collection

Fashion writers have praised the spring / summer collection 2019.

Elizabeth Paton of The New York Times said the looks are "chic and versatile, contemporary, but also with clear references to many design codes that Ms. Beckham wrote for over a decade."

She noted how "smart flattery that was flattered took center stage".

Microflowers were another key look

Jess Cartner-Morley, who writes in The Guardian, said the show "radiated confidence," with Beckham having perfected her formula of "adult polish with a palatable amount of nervousness."

It was said that Beckham was tearful as she walked down the runway to applause before greeting her husband and sons Brooklyn (19), Romeo (16), Cruz (13) and seven-year-old Harper.

Afterwards, she posted a picture on Instagram with her husband and eldest son having a festive lunch.
