The Story of Victoria’s Secret
We’re going to take a look at the story of Victoria’s Secret!
We all know the angels from Victoria’s Secret, but how much do we know about this brand that creates the sexiest lingerie? Victoria’s Secret lingerie makes every woman feel like a queen, but what if I told you there is actually something royal about this brand?
It all started in San Francisco, California, in 1977, when Roy Raymond, an American businessman, who felt embarrassed trying to buy lingerie for his wife in a departament store decided to end this and open his own store that would sell quality lingerie. So, he opened the first store at Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto, which was followed by a mail-order catalog and three other stores.
Ray’s principal concern was to create shops with comfortable environment for men that would make it easier for them when they are buying a fine present for their ladies. Ray arranged the original shop in a Victorian style because he was inspired by England’s long-reigning 19th-century monarch, Queen Victoria, who had a secret love for luxurious lingerie. So, we are entitled to feel like queens when wearing a Victoria’s Secret satin babydoll or a sexy corset that embellishes a woman’s curves.
Victoria’s Secret is well known for it’s fantasy fashion shows that happen every year. They manage to do all that because of the models, that really look like angels. I will mention some of them: Adriana Lima, Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel or Doutzen Kroes. Truth is they are all gorgeous.
Here is where the story ends and the models start shining on the catwalk. Let’s see some pictures from this year’s Victoria’s Secret Show.
