Exec promises ‘evolution’ for Victoria’s Secret

By Marianne Wilson - 09/10/2019
Changes are afoot at Victoria’s Secret.

Speaking at parent company L Brands’ investor day, said John Mehas, head of Victoria’s Secret, said hoppers will begin to see an “evolution” in the brand, reported CNBC.

Part the evolution will be a more diverse group of models in its marketing and advertising that will reflect women of all shapes and sizes.

“[Customers have] been very vocal about what she’d like to see from us in terms of inclusivity, me-too, rethinking the fashion show. We’re essentially in agreement at this,” Mehas said, according to the report.

The meeting kicked off with L Brands’ CEO and chairman Les Wexner referencing his past association with Jeffrey Epstein, the financier who killed himself in his jail cell in New York while facing sex charges.

“Being taken advantage of by someone who was so sick, so cunning, so depraved, is something that I’m embarrassed that I was even close to,” Wexner said. “But that is in the past.”
