End of an era as Victoria's Secret scraps annual fashion show

NEW YORK (AFP) - It was one of the most popular fashion shows for 20 years, but US lingerie brand Victoria's Secret is cancelling its annual extravaganza amid controversy and weak financial results in the #MeToo era.. Read more at straitstimes.com.

Victoria's Secret has also received negative publicity surrounding its owner's links to Jeffrey Epstein, who killed himself in prison this year while awaiting trial on charges he trafficked underage girls for sex.

The decision to scrap it was confirmed by Stuart Burgdoerfer, finance director of parent company L Brands, during a conference call with analysts about the brand's latest quarterly results.

Its sales have been slipping in the past two years, weighing on the bottom line of L Brands which reported a net loss of US$252 million (S$340 million) in the third quarter, against a US$43 million loss a year earlier.

NEW LINGERIE STAR RIHANNA More serious perhaps is that the brand has regularly been mentioned in articles about disgraced hedge fund manager Epstein, who was accused of multiple sexual assaults on young women, many of them teenagers.

Moreover, countless women who accused Epstein of sexual assault said they were recruited to work for him on the false promise that he would get them jobs as Victoria's Secret models.

The brand is big on diversity and seeks to project an image of women as the masters of their own bodies and desires.
