People used to make fun of me in the fashion industry: Victoria Beckham
London: Singer-turned-designer Victoria Beckham says she was a "bit of a laughing stock" in the fashion industry for a long time but it did not affect her determination to succeed.
The 40-year-old designer said it was a struggle to prove herself in the fashion industry after initially rising to prominence for her pop career, reportedly.
"For a long time there, I was a bit of a laughing stock. And while everybody was busy laughing, what was I doing? I was laying the foundation to what I have in place now," Beckham said.
"Everybody said, `Well it`s never going to work because a celebrity can`t do a line (but because) everyone thought it was going to be rubbish (it took) the pressure off a little bit. I didn`t go into this to prove anything to anybody other than myself," she added.
The brunette beauty, who recently celebrated her 40th birthday, said she is not a big fan of the celebrity life and would rather focus on her successful fashion empire.
