Gather your girlfriends, pop some popcorn, and get ready for the 24th annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Victoria’s Secret announced a collaboration with Mary Katrantzou to design the pieces for this year’s runway. Katrantzou is the second high-end fashion designer, after Balmain, to create show-stopping looks for the fashion show. The London-based designer, composed a colorful, bold, uplifting collection, with the goal to empower women to be confident and stand out.
One of the most exciting parts of the collection is that all of the pieces have a dual purpose. They can be worn not only as undergarments but actual clothing as well.
“My work is about perception and perspective and filtering beauty through design to allow women to stand out,” Katrantzou told Vogue. “I wanted to turn that on its head and look at the ‘foundation’ that we wear as women, underneath the clothes I usually design in my collections. Underwear is the first protective layer that has the ability to reinforce a woman’s confidence.”
The collection will make its debut at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show. Immediately after the show airs, the full range of pieces will be available in VS stores and online.
