Presented as a feature length film, it will unite fashion, film, art and culture featuring dynamic global creatives, top supermodels, musical talent and more.
NEW YORK , May 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Victoria's Secret announces The Victoria's Secret World Tour, reaffirming the brand's ongoing commitment to champion women's voices, perspectives and experiences.

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 honored 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," said Raúl Martinez, EVP and Head Creative Director at Victoria's Secret & Co.
