Victoria Beckham hopes to inspire women to "follow their dreams".

The former Spice Girl is now a super successful fashion designer, with her recent Fall/Winter 14 collection once again a hit with critics.

Earlier this week Victoria joined a campaign to ban the word bossy from being used in conjunction with successful women, claiming she found it "thought provoking" that men in the same position are usually called "commanding".

Now, the star detailed how she hopes to encourage women with her involvement in The Skype Collaboration Project - which takes fans behind the scenes of her business.

"I always say the best way to advance your career opportunities is to try to get as much experience as you can in the field you want to enter. I hope that the journey I have been on and shown through The Skype Collaboration Project will encourage women to work hard and follow their dreams," she told


Victoria presents her collections as part of New York Fashion Week. She began showing her pieces to just a small room of people but her shows have since grown and she's involved in every aspect of them.

"I don't have one particular favourite part. The whole production of the show is something that is very close to me and I only have a few minutes to present my statement for the season so every single element of those minutes is as important as the other," she said. "I love how everything comes together in one cohesive vision."

The star is so intent on things being perfect during her shows, she doesn't have time to go to any other presentations. She doesn't even watch her own properly as she prefers to focus on ensuring every look is perfect as it goes down the runway.
