After a four-year hiatus, the Victoria's Secret runway is returning. The previously televised spectacle has been reimagined as a "one-of-a-kind show" that is part documentary and part a "spectacular fashion event."
Called The Victoria’s Secret World Tour, the special promises to be "an unrivaled viewing experience that celebrates the mission of Victoria’s Secret—to uplift and champion women—on a global scale."
"This film is the ultimate expression of the Victoria's Secret brand transformation. It will be driven by fashion, glamour and entertainment with a nod to beloved iconography from the past but in a bold, redefined way," Raúl Martinez, EVP and Head Creative Director at Victoria's Secret & Co., said in a previous press release. "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."
Before the iconic show was canceled in 2019, then-L Brands CEO Les Wexner said—in a memo obtained by CNBC—that "fashion is a business of change," adding, "We must evolve and change to grow. With that in mind, we have decided to re-think the traditional Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show."
Well, the brand has done just that. Here is everything to know about the reimagined Victoria's Secret fashion show: The Victoria's Secret World Tour 2023.
What is The Victoria’s Secret World Tour?

The re-imagined fashion show is described as "a celebration of women and global creatives, looking at fashion and art through a cinematic narrative lens."
