Brooklyn Beckham is working for his mom as her label’s new photographer
Never shy of promoting Brand Beckham, fashion designer Victoria has raised eyebrows by employing teenage son Brooklyn to photograph her new luxury clothing line. The 19-year-old’s appointment comes only four months after Victoria was forced to make a third of her staff redundant. About 60 workers lost their jobs after new investors ordered a review of Victoria Beckham Ltd, which lost £8.5 million last year.
But The Mail on Sunday can reveal that months after dropping out of a photography course in New York, the oldest child of David and Victoria is on the family payroll to oversee his mother’s advertising campaigns. Former Spice Girl Victoria, 44, has a high regard for Brooklyn’s ability as a photographer and his first big project was to snap her lucrative collaboration with Reebok, called the Merch Collection, earlier this summer.
A source close to the Beckhams told the MoS: ‘Brooklyn snapping this new campaign has raised a lot of eyebrows around the industry because he is so young and very inexperienced. But Victoria doesn’t care, it’s fantastic experience for him. It is her dream to have Brooklyn working for her. She trusts his eye and loves the fact he’s young. She continually asks for his thoughts on her designs and how they are presented.’
