Victoria Beckham Says She is a Nightmare Boss & a Perfectionist

Published Categorized as Uncategorized


When it comes to her fashion label, Victoria Beckham believes she must be a nightmare to work for. The reason why? She is a complete perfectionist and pushes her team to make everything to her exact specifications. She won’t rest until everything is right and admits she must be an annoying person to work for:

“I’m a perfectionist, I like everything to be right. I’m probably a complete pain in the neck to work with because it is really important to me because I’ve grown this brand from nothing to where it is now.”

Speaking on balancing motherhood with her passion for work, Victoria says she plans around her children’s lives and makes sure she is always there for them at important events or big moments so she can feel as though she isn’t missing out on them growing up. She says she still often feels so torn:

 “I think you feel so torn, don’t you? But I’ve got great people who handle my schedule and everything does revolve around the children. So, if there’s a parents’ night or an Easter bonnet parade or a nativity play, whatever it might be, then I plan everything around that so I can always be there.”

Commenting on her love for fashion, Victoria says that she worked to build the label’s reputation to where it is because at first people might have been skeptical:

 “There’s a lot of people here, I hope I’m going to say something good now. I’ve always wanted to be involved in the fashion industry, I felt it in my tummy. At the beginning there was a lot of raised eyebrows, or those that could raise their eyebrows. When I started, i did one-on-one presentations, I’d talk for hours to people who didn’t even speak English. I think a lot of people probably thought, ‘Shut up, stop going on about a bloody grosgrain waistband!’”
