Designer and former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham is set to be appointed OBE in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours list.
Beckham will be honoured for her contributions to fashion and charity work, including her work for as an ambassador for AIDS charity UNAIDS and has told family she is “delighted and humbled for the recognition”, according to the Daily Mail.
She launched Victoria Beckham in 2008 and has since built a successful brand, operating a flagship store on London’s Dover Street. In 2016, the luxury womenswear brand opened its first store outside the UK, a 2,198 sq ft store in Hong Kong’s The Landmark shopping centre. Beckham also announced a collaboration with US retailer Target, which will go on sale in April 2017.
