Victoria Beckham - Victoria Beckham crowned Womanswear Designer of The Year

Victoria Beckham has been named Womanswear Designer of The Year.

The Spice Girl-turned-designer was given the prestigious award at the WGSN Global Fashion Awards a glittering ball hosted by Cat Deeley at The Savoy hotel in London last night (05.11.12).

A judge at the event - which celebrates brilliance in fashion and retail design across the globe - said: ''In just five years Victoria Beckham has gone from creating a handful of grandma dresses to building a truly modern and covetable luxury brand, defying cynics and winning over the critics in the process. This is her year.''

The svelte star was unable to attend the event due to commitments in Los Angeles, where she lives with her LA Galaxy soccer star husband David and their four children, Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 10, seven-year-old Cruz, and 16-month-old daughter Harper.

She tweeted her thanks to organisers WGSN: ''Thank you @wgsn, thrilled to win Womenswear Designer @GFashionAwards #GFA2012 ! X vb''

Victoria - whose clothes are coveted by celebrities including Nicole Scherzinger and Blake Lively - then posted a video of her spring/summer 2013 catwalk show on her Twitter feed.

Topshop was awarded the Womenswear Design Team award, while The Hall of Fame award went photographer Rankin.

Charlotte Olympia took the Footwear & Accessories designer crown and Kim Jones at Louis Vuitton was named best Menswear designer.
