The Victoria's Secret Angels Are Flying East

Is Shanghai the new fashion capital?

The highly anticipated Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has, since birth, been associated with New York City. While the producers have dipped their feathered wings in Miami and Los Angeles, they have always gone back to their roots when it comes to choosing a location for the big runway show. 
 
Most recently, the VS angels flew across the pond, testing the vibe in London and, more recently, in our hometown of Paris. This year, the angels are taking their charm even further afield, selecting Shanghai, China as the location for the 2017 show. The announcement coincided with the opening of several new Victoria’s Secret boutiques in the country, most notably ones that stock the full lingerie line. Previously, only the brand's beauty products and accessories were available on the Chinese market, so it's an exciting time for VS fans. 

The decision to host the biggest lingerie event of the year in Shanghai came as a surprise and also a revolution. With so many new and emerging designers coming from China, and it’s growing reputation for impeccable fashion and all-round newness, just how long will it be before we start seeing labels that read "Designed in China" as opposed to the familiar "Made in China"?

Of course, announcing a new location wouldn’t be complete without a pre-show visit from the angels. A small group of models including Josephine Skriver, Sui He and Alessandra Ambrosio took to Instagram earlier this month to show us all the fun times they’re having exploring the city and visiting store openings. 
 
VS lovers might be wondering whether or not this drastic change of location spells the end for New York, but the most pressing question on everyone’s lips is, obviously, “who will wear the fantasy bra this year?”
