Background on the Shows You can bet there is always a big crowd for Victoria's
Secret annual fashion show. Offer supermodels marching down the runway in
designer underwear, free booze, food for all, the glitz of a fancy location,
dozens of video crews, and you have an event that requires the talents of not
one, but two public relations firms! A lot is going on, but little of it has to
do with fashion. About every video crew from the western world lines the back
of the room, but few members of the real fashion press are ever in attendence.
Secret has hired many of the top New York fashion PR firms to handle media
relations in a mostly unsuccessful attempt to lure top fashion editors to the
event. For the first 3 shows it was Rogers & Cowan who handled the show -
but then they lost the Victoria's Secret account 9 years ago to Desiree Gruber,
one of their own vice presidents who took the account to start her own agency
called 'Full Pictures'. A second New York agency is still used to handle press
relations. In the past, it was first Kevin Krier & Associates, then Loving
& Weintraub, and for the past eight seasons it has been KCD.
But there is
only so much respect you can buy with money and silicone. And there was less
real flesh showing at a Victoria's Secret show than at an average RTW show. At
some of those shows the girls wear no underwear at all!
