^THE FASHION FIX^ – 6th August 2019
This week in the world of fashion, the news was unveiled that Victoria’s Secret decided to hire its first-ever transgender model following the update that there will be no televised show this year, plus fashion store Target is re-releasing some of its most successful collaborations and the second Reebok X Victoria Beckham line has arrived.
Transgender model joins Victoria’s Secret
Chief marketing officer Ed Razek caused outrage at the end of last year, stating that the label’s ‘fantasy’ wouldn’t entertain the idea of having a transgender woman as an angel. However, it seems the global lingerie label is finally accepting today’s inclusivity and has hired Brazilian model Valentina Sampaio as its first trans model.
Shooting for the label’s Pink clothing line, the model posted on Instagram an exclusive video and behind-the-scenes photos accompanied by the caption “Never stop dreaming”. Sampaio was additionally the first woman in history to be on the cover of Vogue Paris in 2017 and again gracing the front of Vogue Brazil in 2018.
The news is revealed after it was said Victoria’s Secret show will not be televised this year due to viewing stats plummeting last year to an all-time low.
