Earlier this year, the designer penned an essay to herself for British Vogue and opened up about what it’s been like to build an empire, especially amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
“Building a fashion and beauty business requires passion, tenacity, fearlessness; it’s not for the faint-hearted,” she shared in January. “Building one in a pandemic was nearly impossible…but I know you, and you will use this experience to grow and expand. The reality of being a mum, a wife, a friend, and a businesswoman creates a constantly shifting push-pull in life. But you think big, love the hustle, and you never take no for an answer.”
“Always remember your mantra,” Victoria continued, “‘Work hard and be kind.’ Do you have this embroidered on a pillow yet? … Keep up the juggling act. It’s never easy but tremendously rewarding—a privilege.”
