Victoria Beckham has been nominated for a British Fashion Council award.

The former Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer launched her label in 2008 to rave reviews and now her hard work has paid off as she's been shortlisted for the BFC's Designer Brand of the Year award, taking on fashion heavyweights such as Mulberry, Burberry and Pringle.

Victoria shows her twice yearly collections during New York Fashion Week but the brand is designed and made in London.

Since its launch the mother-of-three's collections - which focuses on simple dramatic - have become a huge hit and her creations have been seen on stars from Jennifer Lopez to Elle Macpherson.

Phoebe Philo - who has transformed French fashion house Celine into one of the industry's most sought-after labels - has been shortlisted for the Designer of the Year, alongside Erdem and Christopher Kane while Lara Stone is nominated for Model of the Year.

Harold Tillman, Chairman of the BFC commented that the diverse nominees reflected the "incredible vision and breadth of talent that British designers offer".

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on December 7.
