The pop star turned fashion designer will make around 20 redundancies in London in response to Covid-19 pandemic
The redundancies are the latest upheaval in what has been a rollercoaster season for Beckham. A decision to furlough 30 staff at the beginning of lockdown met with a backlash against the proposed use of public funds by the pop star turned fashion designer, who has an estimated net worth of £335m. The decision was reversed two weeks later.
The jobs will come from production roles at Beckham’s dressmaking atelier in London. With consumer demand shrinking and supply chains under pressure, the brand plans to reduce the number of options per collection by 30%-40%, beginning with the spring 2021 collection, which Beckham is currently working on.
“It feels very relevant now to take things back to basics. It has fostered great energy and a real sense of creativity amongst the teams,” Beckham said.
A spokesperson added that the label had until March been on course to reach profitability by the end of this year, but the fall in demand meant that “in line with many other brands, we are now paring down what we do.”
Beckham is upbeat about the prospect of fashion week under social distancing rules. Her most recent show, in February, was staged beneath the grand Rubens-painted ceiling of Banqueting House in Whitehall to a celebrity-packed audience.

The ’90s brought lumpy denim and flannel shirts, but also the concept of wearing a satin, spaghetti-strapped teddy as a dress. Exposure is to be at the maximum and as much as skin is shown. Tight-fitting tops are chosen to show off the features like breasts and stomach.
People of this fashion style must really be cautious as regards showing off the skin, sex should not amount to nakedness. Nakedness isn’t part of fashion. To properly do a sexy fashion style, here is the rule: If you would revealing any cleavage, then you can scrape off any short, mini or very high slit and if you would be on mini or a very high slit, be careful of how deep the cleavage would be because there shouldn’t be too much going on.
