Like Paul Weller, these British artists have all tried their hand at the fashion industry -- with mixed results.
1. Liam Gallagher has nabbed a number of accolades for his menswear line, Pretty Green, since starting it in 2009: He picked up the menswear brand of the year honor at the Drapers Fashion Awards in 2010 and was named best breakthrough international brand at the WGSN Awards in 2011. That same year, Paul Weller designed six pieces for Gallagher's line, which has stores in London, Glasgow and Tokyo.
2. Victoria Beckham launched her own denim label, dvb Style, in 2006, which she followed with an eponymous line at New York Fashion Week in 2008. It did so well that the former Spice Girl introduced a secondary dress line, simply called Victoria, in 2012. "If there's still any doubt about her credibility as a fashion designer, this fall collection should erase all of that," Forbes gushed.
