British style icon Victoria Beckham tonight hosted an exclusive British Airways cocktail party to celebrate Singapore Fashion Week, while also taking the opportunity to share her travel tips with the audience and discuss how she balances her busy schedule as a mother and businesswoman.
The singer-turned-fashion designer attended the event for a selection of VIP British Airways guests at the renowned Flutes restaurant, which is housed at the National Museum of Singapore. Victoria was wearing a dress from her autumn/winter 2015 ready-to-wear collection.
Victoria spoke of juggling her time as a mum of four with the demands of life as an international businesswoman and global brand. She discussed travelling the world with her family and shared that as soon as she gets on board she changes into something comfortable so she can relax and enjoy catching up on films. Dark sunglasses and a lot of water are her travel essentials.
The renowned designer revealed that the White Cube gallery and the V&A are among her favourite spots in London, the city she chose as the location of her flagship Mayfair boutique.
Victoria Beckham said: “I’ve been flying with British Airways since I was a child. I have some very fond travel memories associated with the airline and it was great to relive them this evening.
“David and I love visiting Asia and I feel at home every time I return to Singapore. I always find the fashion here incredibly exciting and inspiring, and it was an honour to show my collection over the weekend.”
Victoria Beckham also shared insights into how she prepares for long-haul flights: “I travel a lot with my job and charity work for UNAIDs so I have my on board routine perfected. Flying is my opportunity to disconnect and catch up on work and sleep. Once I’ve boarded the plane, I kick off my heels and change into something comfortable and sit back to unwind.”
Robert Williams, British Airways regional general manager, South East Asia, said: “Victoria Beckham is the epitome of British sophistication and it has been wonderful to have her here with us this evening. We always look forward to welcoming her on our flights.”
