The fashion designer also added that her girl group ditch the latest fashion standards and just wore whatever made them feel good, this contributed a lot to the band's big success, "I look at us all, and it makes me smile because we didn't care. Whether it was fashion or beauty, we didn't care. We wore what made us feel good. We weren't worried, 'Is this the newest, coolest?' We set trends because there was no fear." she stated.
Beckham became a part of Spice Girls in 1994 as Posh Spice alongside Mel B (Scary Spice), Mel C (Sporty Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), and Geri Hariwell (Ginger Spice). The group had reunited numerous times in the past through reunion tours but Beckham wasn't included in the lineup.
