Victoria Beckham Says Her Fashion Brand Will Strive for 'More Inclusion & Representation' in Support of Black Lives Matter Movement

Victoria Beckham is working on making her brand more inclusive.

The 46-year-old designer shared a statement on her Instagram on Friday (June 5) to say that she took a step back from social media to focus on how she can diversify her fashion brand in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

“Watching things unfold and learning more about the Black Lives Matter movement, I’ve been truly sickened by how deeply ingrained racism is in our society,” Victoria wrote. “It’s clear that it’s each of our responsibilities to speak out and I want to use my platform for education, conversation and change.”

Victoria continued: “The fashion industry has a huge role to play, and for me, it starts with representation, both within my business and who we work with externally. I’ve always aimed for inclusivity, but we all need to look inwards and be better. At Victoria Beckham, we’ve set up an internal working group as a first step and will provide additional support to ensure that we are listening to each other, discussing the issues, identifying unconscious bias in ourselves and ensuring our short and long-term actions reflect all our learnings.”

“Whilst things won’t change or be solved in a day, we clearly can’t wait another day to start and I am absolutely committed to being better and doing more, both personally and professionally,” Victoria concluded. “I hope you all share my sentiment and are doing the same with your friends, family, brands and businesses so that we all play our part in this vital issue. x vb”
