Victoria Beckham has opened up about her battle to make it in the fashion world.

The former Spice Girl said she had to "work hard" to be taken seriously as a respected designer.

In a new trailer, Five Years: The Victoria Beckham Fashion Story, Victoria said she was following a path that no-one else had taken before.

She said: "I always dreamed of designing a collection. It was always my passion.

"I was a Spice Girl married to a footballer, I was trying to do something that no-one had really done before."

Victoria, who has ruled out making more comeback performances with the Spice Girls, said: "I've always loved fashion and I was that kid who used to watch my mum get ready and just think, 'Wow, you look amazing!'."

Victoria, who made the trailer as part of a collaboration with Skype, added: "I've always had to work hard for everything."
