Does Les Wexner Fake Victoria’s Secret’s Origin Story?

When he decided to make a business of Women’s lingerie at that time his father doubted the success of this business. But in 1982 Wexner bought 5 Victoria’s secret Stores from Roy and Gay Raymond.
Eventually, he expanded his stores in American malls and made the largest lingerie retailer in the U.S by 1990. He also founded L brands like Bath and body works and Abercrombie & Fitch.
Wexner invented a fake story about Victoria. He uses beautiful models in a luxurious photo shoot which is just a marketing tactic and nothing else. He created a sense of female empowerment around the brand that millions of women brought into.

Former Victoria Secret Executive Cindy Fedus-Fields alleged that Epstein once tried to recruit models for their catalogue and it occurred in 1997. At that time Wexner warned him it is against company policy. But then also he did not cut the partnership with him.
Epstein’s history of sexually assaulting women is not good for Wexner’s image especially when there are some specific allegations from Alicia Arden that have started in the press.
Also, Epstein was convicted on charges of child prostitution and soliciting a prostitute in Florida in 2008. He is a third-level sex offender by the state of New York.

When there is news regarding Harvey Weinstein’s sexual assault allegations hit the mainstream and the #Metoo movement started. The purpose of the fashion show of Victoria’s Secret Angels and the brand’s own history of not addressing issues with sexual assault and harassment claims came front.
