Singer-fashion designer Victoria Beckham has been named Britain’s most successful entrepreneur after seeing her fashion empire grow over the last five years.

The 40-year-old singer-turned-fashion designer has topped a list of over 100 business people after seeing her fashion empire’s turnover rise from 1 million pound to a staggering 30 million pound in just five years, with her staff growing from three employees to 100, reported Contactmusic.

“She’s got a real business, some design talent and some business nous. She gets a lot of stick for being a celeb fashionista but I don’t think that’s fair. “She has built something real out of her own celebrity which is quite a contemporary story. She deserves to be celebrated,” she said.

Victoria — who has children Brooklyn, 15, Romeo, 12, Cruz, nine, and Harper, three, with husband David Beckham – launched her eponymous label in 2008 and opened her first stand-alone boutique in London last month. The magazine considered factors such as number of jobs created, overall estimated wealth and sales figures over a five-year period in compiling the list.

Amit & Meeta Patel, founders of pharmaceutical group Auden Mckenzie, and Mahmud Kamani of Boohoo.com took second and third place in the list respectively.
