Victoria Beckham reportedly made £15 million from her fashion line in the first three months of 2011.

The singer-turned-fashion designer raked in the staggering figures after increasing sales by 71 per cent since last season and the star - who has seen her Victoria Beckham designs worn by celebrities including Cheryl Cole and Elle Macpherson - is said to be thrilled.

A source close to the 37-year-old star - who is married to soccer superstar David Beckham - said: "Victoria never dreamed her clothing range would be successful. She is close to eclipsing her husband David!

"The Fashion business is currently due to exceed all expectation with its figures up 71 per cent on last season, which equals £15 million in sales, while the turnover increases from £1.3 million to £2.8 million.

While Victoria's designs retail for up to £5,000, she recently launched a more affordable second range - Victoria by Victoria Beckham - her second range - which she says channels her "inner girl".

Victoria - who recently gave birth to first daughter Harper, a sister for the couple's three sons - explained: "It's definitely channelling my inner girl. I started this collection before I was pregnant and the doctors told me at first I was having a boy. So mainly I wanted to do dresses that I wanted, that weren't 'out there' - and at the same time show that, contrary to what most people think, I do have a sense of humour."
