British designer Victoria Beckham is allegedly set to receive an OBE for her services to the fashion industry and for her charity work.

The former Spice Girl has been named on the Queen's New Year's Honours List, reports the Mail Online, with the publication citing that she is "delighted and humbled" by the recognition. The official list of honorees will be released on January 1, 2017.

Beckham first launched her eponymous clothing line in 2008, focusing on feminine dresses, and the label has gone on to become a must-see fixture on the New York Fashion Week circuit, expanding into separates and accessories for modern women. In 2011, she introduced a secondary, lower-priced line, called 'Victoria by Victoria Beckham', and November of that year saw her win 'Best Designer Brand' at the British Fashion Awards.

Prior to launching her own brand, Beckham dabbled in fashion via collaborations, designing a limited-edition collection for Rock & Republic called 'VB Rocks' in 2004 and her own jeans line titled 'DVB Denim Collection' in 2007. She also walked the catwalk in Milan for Roberto Cavalli in 2006, starred in a 2008 Marc Jacobs campaign and has featured in multiple issues of Vogue magazine. Earlier this year she revealed plans to team up with Target on an affordable capsule collection.
