A Movement To Reform Fashion
Victoria’s Secret, which previoulsy operated under parent company L Brands, now operates under Victoria’s Secret & Co.
Victoria’s Secret & Co. has not agreed to #PayUp
11-3-20 – More than 7,000 cases of coronavirus in Sri Lanka, a third of the nation’s total, are linked back to a factory that manufacturers clothing for Victoria’s Secret, among other large brands. Workers were forced back to work after feeling ill in order to fulfill orders for brands.
9-1-20 – Victoria’s Secret & Co. (previously L Brands) has made no public commitment regarding orders placed prior to the pandemic. Though Pay Up Fashion has recieved no complaints of order cancellations, we are tracking the company’s progress towards our 7 Actions and towards rectifying its long history of sexual harassment within the workplace and labor rights violations in its supply chain.
8-16-21 – While Victoria’s Secret & Co. does publicly disclose a list of what appears to be its active tier 1 cut-and-sew garment factories, the company has not committed to The Transparency Pledge and so we have given VS A “NO” for Go Transparent. In addition to complying with The Transparency Pledge, to receive a “YES” for Action 3 on the PayUp Fashion Tracker, VS must a) disclose its tier 2 (fabric mills), tier 3 (yarn and fiber mills) and tier 4 (raw materials) suppliers; b) disclose the wages of the lowest-earning workers at each factory and c) share audit and remediation reports publicly, and make these findings available to the garment workers in the audited factories.
