Now dubbed the Victoria’s Secret World Tour, the revamped event will showcase the design talent of 20 global creatives.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is making a big comeback with its latest official announcement of a “Victoria’s Secret World Tour”. This new fashion show, which last aired in 2018, is expected to be bigger, better, and more inclusive than ever, and it will be streamed live and made into a feature-length documentary. The lingerie company’s upcoming runway show will also showcase the talents of 20 global creatives alongside Victoria’s Secret creations.
“The film is the ultimate expression of the Victoria’s Secret brand transformation,” Raúl Martinez, the company’s EVP and head creative director said in a press release. “It will be driven by fashion, glamour, and entertainment with a nod to beloved iconography from the past but in a bold, redefined way. We are so honoured to offer our platform and have it explored through the lens and artistry of global creatives who celebrate the individuality of women’s stories and perspectives.”

WHAT & WHEN CAN WE EXPECT FROM VS’S WORLD TOUR?
The Victoria’s Secret World Tour documentary is expected to be premiered this September. According to the press release notes, the show “will be streamed internationally and culminate in a love fashion event this fall.”
The documentary will follow the behind-the-scenes process of 20 global creatives from the cities of Bogotá, Lagos, London, and Tokyo as they create four fashion collections, which will be staged on the runway alongside the brand’s custom designs.
According to the brand, these are the representatives of each city:
From Bogotá are fashion designer Melissa Valdes, filmmaker Cristina Sánchez Salamanca, painter Lorena Torres, choreographer Piscis, and musician Goyo.
From Lagos are fashion designer Bubu Ogisi, filmmaker Korty, artist Eloghosa Osunde, artist Ashley Okoli, and musician and photographer Wavy the Creator.
From London are designer Supriya Lele, filmmaker Margot Bowman, artist and writer Ebun Sodipo, lingerie designer Michaela Stark, and artist Phoebe Collings.
From Tokyo are designer Jenny Fax, filmmaker Umi Ishihara, painter Kaito Itsuki, dancer Aoi Yamada, and artist Kom-I.
Now, the intricate question is: Will the original “angels” make a comeback, too? The brand has not shared official news regarding if former supermodels such as Bella Hadid, Gigi Hadid, Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel, and more would make cameos for the new documentary and live spectacle. However, it is expected that this new runway show features mostly new faces.
