Every single year since the early 2000’s, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show rolls out the pretty pink carpet and taping begins. Models spend months if not years preparing for this moment. The night comes to strap on their wings and strut down the cat walk while famous artists perform. All while audience members ooh and ahh from the comfort of their living room.

While I love to see the many faces of the Victoria’s Secret Angels strut around in diamond studded lingerie, times are changing, and ratings are falling.

The New York Times stated that the fashion show has been running on air for almost two decades. According to USA Today, Les Wexner the CEO of L Brands announced that the company was going to go in a different direction regarding the show.

“Fashion is a business of change. We must evolve and change to grow. With that in mind, we have decided to re-think the traditional Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Going forward we don’t believe network television is the right fit.” The statement concluded, “In 2019 and beyond, we’re focusing on developing exciting and dynamic content and a new kind of event- delivered to our customer on platforms that she’s glued to… and in ways that will push the boundaries of fashion in the global digital age.”

Wexner said the brand needed to re-think the traditional show and the company was “taking a fresh look at every aspect of our business.”

None of this should come as a surprise since ratings have been dropping and just last year, USA Today reported that the show hit a record low in their ratings. The ratings were a major decrease from 2013 when 9.7 million viewers tuned in and just last year only 3.3 million watched the star-studded event.

The company is taking hits left and right with 53 retail stores closing their doors and as USA Today reports, they weren’t meeting “expectations.” Also, chief marking officer Edward Razek made headlines when he was interviewed by Vogue. He received heavy criticism for his comments about hiring models with different sizes and also made comments about transgender models.

The New York Times reported that Wexner and his team were “rebirthing the brand” and was excited about the future. “We have made enormous progress in a very short time, and are looking forward to a successful fall and holiday with an elevated, fashion-forward assortment.”

It will be interesting to see what the future holds for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
