Victoria Beckham’s troubled fashion label rocked by another loss!

VICTORIA Beckham’s fashion label racked up a £12.3million loss last year as demand for the former Spice Girl’s highend clothes slumped.

Accounts filed this week show that the pop starturned-businesswoman has failed to turn around her troubled brand’s fortunes. Sales of its range – which includes £2,000 dresses and £1,000 handbags – fell by 16 per cent from £47.6million in 2017 to £35.1million last year. The company has lost a total of £34.7million since its launch in 2008 and its struggles led Mrs Beckham to insist earlier this year that it was ‘not a vanity project’.

Chairman Ralph Toledano said demand for the label’s clothing and accessories had ‘ plateaued’ after years of rising sales. He told trade journal Business of Fashion: ‘The performance was in line with expectations, so we were not surprised. Our goal is to reach profitability as soon as possible. ‘ I firmly believe that our destiny is in our hands. We have a great talent in Victoria and, if you take that asset with a dream team, we can do it.’ The brand has been able to struggle on as Mrs Beckham, 45, has repeatedly dug into her family’s deep pockets to keep it afloat. Victoria Beckham Limited breached the conditions of a £10million bank loan earlier this year, but she and her ex-footballer husband David paid down debts and plugged a funding gap with a £13.6million loan injection.

In 2017 Beckham Brand Limited, which is controlled by the couple, wrote off £6.6million of loans owed by her label in return for shares. At the end of last year, her brand still owed more than £2million to her husband’s company, DB Ventures Limited, the accounts show.

His company, which also filed annual accounts this week, saw its profits drop from £26.5million to £14.8million. Mrs Beckham’s label, which has to compete with bigger rivals such as Gucci and Mulberry, sells in 400 stores in more than 50 countries.

earlier this year it said it wanted to widen the range of countries it sold to, particularly in Asia, and claimed it would be profitable in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Mrs Beckham said: ‘If I want this brand to still be here in 10, 20, 30, 40 years’ time, I need to break even and then I need to be profitable.

‘We’re on the right track to do that, but it’s not going to happen tomorrow.

‘The company has been trying to improve its performance, launching its own cosmetics range, striking a partnership with Reebok, and making price cuts.’

The new Charlie's Angel Ella Balinska

Walking tall, Britain’s thighly talented Angel

IT’S a tall order to star as a Charlie’s Angel in a major Hollywood movie.

But 5ft 11in Ella Balinska, 23, appears to be taking it in her stride judging by her appearance at last night’s UK premiere of the film in a daring thigh-high split black dress.

Miss Balinska, 23, the daughter of TV chef Lorraine Pascale, towered over her 5ft 3in co-stars – American Kristen Stewart, 29, and fellow Briton Naomi Scott, 26.


Hitting the heights: Miss Balinska with co-stars and director.

She plays Jane Kano in the movie and posed with castmates and director Elizabeth Banks for photographers at the glitzy premiere at the Curzon cinema in London’s Mayfair. She is the first mixed-race actress to be an Angel.

Her mother, 47, was the first black model to grace the cover of American Elle and appeared on the catwalk for fashion brands like Versace, Her father is Miss Pascale’s ex-husband Polish musician Kaz Balinski-Jundzill. Charlie’s Angels was originally a much-loved US TV series that ran from 1976 to 1981. A 2000 movie version starred Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu and Drew Barrymore.

Miss Balinska has praised the diversity of her film, saying: ‘We had this amazing opportunity to inspire a whole new generation.’ She claimed not to have relied on her famous mother to get opportunities, saying she worked as a sales assistant at Selfridges in between auditions.

Fake Amazon Reviews by Unscrupulous Hackers and Jealous Sellers #blackhat



The Real Handbag Shop is a small and friendly family business in the UK. We have sold on Amazon platforms across the globe for many years. Our staff work really hard, especially in the run up to Christmas. We often put in extra hours when deliveries of new stock are delayed and arrive late in the evening or, if there is work to catch up with. We are all very busy choosing new and exciting products that we think our valued customers will love, photographing, taking measurements, writing descriptions, getting translations in European languages, answering customer queries. We are labelling and packing, filing accounts and stocktaking. There is always work to be done. We are constantly busy, busy, busy from morning till dusk.

We are proud to be a small business contributing to the UK economy, bringing growth and innovation and providing employment opportunities.

So it’s just soul destroying to find that our business has been maliciously attacked by someone who obviously wants to see it fail. Our business, along with those of other good honest traders, has been targeted by an Amazon reviewer on the Amazon Spain platform. He hides behind the pseudonym Javier D. If you log onto his profile page (by clicking on the link below the image) you can see that he has written hundreds of negative reviews for a multitude of various products. Anyone who puts their heart and soul into their own work or business will know the feeling of utter despair if they too, have been sabotaged. 

Javier D. on Amazon Spain

But who would want to use such dirty tactics? It has to be a competitor who wants to damage the sales of existing successful businesses so that they can boost sales for themselves. To a certain degree, being in the retail sector means you have to go into competition with other sellers of products like yours. Most businesses might then try to get the edge on their competitors by promoting their own products with adverts and by using social media to garner attraction for their own online shop. They may run monthly sales or competitions. We had a gentleman’s agreement with one of our local competitors not to sell identical items and we agreed to split the styles and designs of one particular brand accordingly. We shared the sales rather than go into a price war and it was mutually beneficial. Few would resort to trying to take out the competition directly. Few would want to see anyone else’s business crash and burn. We are all human after all.

All Negative Reviews by Javier D.

The attacks by Javier D. are therefore quite brutal. He only started posting reviews on October 5th 2019 but has already clocked up 132 negative reviews (not one positive). He managed to post 17 negative reviews on the 9th October alone. Each review states that it is a verified purchase but I can confirm that he did not actually buy the two Catwalk Collection handbags from us, so there’s some clever hacking going on here. Could he have purchased them from another supplier? No, The Real Handbag Shop is the only authorised supplier of Catwalk Collection Handbags and related products.

Malicious Fake Reviews on Amazon.es

 Items targeted include childrens’ toys, trainers, smartphone covers, luggage, ipad covers, baby mobiles and handbags to name but a few. Either this guy is being paid by various sellers for his services or he sells quite a diverse and varied amount of stock himself.

Amazon needs to act quickly to stop fake reviews such as these. Not only is it damaging for their third-party marketplace sellers but consumers will lose faith in all Amazon reviews; the trust that Amazon strived to build over the years will quickly vanish, along with its customers.

So what do you get for your money? High quality genuine leather, real brass fittings, silky signature lining and even a chunky paper notepad included. It also comes beautifully packaged with tissue and gift box. It looks very expensive but is actually priced at under £40.

This neat zip folder is designed to be comfortably carried under the arm but if you want to pop it inside a work bag or, carry a handbag,
this leather matches the following handbags and work bags by Catwalk Collection: Claudia, Diana, Fern, Gallery, Pandora, Sienna, Vicky, Victoria. There are also matching accessories such as purses and cosmetic bags: Emma, Isla, Gallery and Victoria.
