Victoria Beckham has admitted that she feels ''sick'' before her fashion shows.

The 38-year-old fashion designer explained that she still gets nervous ahead of her presentations.

Contact Music quote the former Spice Girl as saying: ''Before the collections go out, I feel sick to my stomach. I definitely don't see myself as the toast of the town.''

However, Victoria admitted that she loves her job and feels very lucky to be able to follow her dream.

She added: "I just consider myself to be so blessed to be able to do what I love.''

Victoria showed her latest collection at New York Fashion Week in September and she explained that she felt ''relieved'' when it was over.

She said: ''I think I'm just relieved it's over. I still find it so nerve-wracking. I wanted to use the same aesthetic as I always have, but apply it in a different way. I've also been doing a lot of in-store events in different department stores and boutiques. It has been really interesting to listen to what the customer wants, and I think that first-hand knowledge has given me a bit more confidence to take each next step.''
