London: Singer-turned-fashion designer Victoria Beckham, who recently gave birth to her fourth child Harper Seven, has been told to avoid wearing high-heeled shoes during New York Fashion Week.

The 37-year-old was found to be suffering with a slipped disc in her back after giving birth to Harper and doctors have told her she needs to avoid donning her beloved heels.

"Victoria`s not had an easy past few weeks. But she`s a trooper and after getting the all-clear to attend Fashion Week - provided her back doesn`t significantly deteriorate - she has been advised to avoid heels," quoted a source as saying.

"Although her heel-wearing wasn`t the cause of her back problems, stilettos don`t help her condition. Victoria has been frantically surfing the web for an acceptable pair of flats, ones which don`t make her look like a golf club," the source added.

The Fashion Week is scheduled for this September.
