Nigerian indie filmmaker and YouTuber, Eniola Olanrewaju, popularly known as Korty, has announced her directorial debut, Victoria’s Secret: The Tour ‘23. The film premiered on September 26, 2023, and is now available on Prime Video movie streaming platform.
The film forays behind the scenes of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, featuring interviews with models and designers from around the world. It was creatively directed by Partel Oliva, with film direction from Korty, Margot Bowman, Lola Raban-Oliva, Christina Sanchez, and Umi Ishihara.
Victoria’s Secret: The Tour ‘23 is a special fashion event that offers a glimpse into the artistic process of the members of the VS20 from Bogota, London, Lagos, and Tokyo. Earlier this year, Victoria’s Secret announced the VS20, an initiative created to advance gender equality and empower underrepresented voices in communities where the selected members of the VS20 live, operate, and create their art. The African creatives on the VS20 include Korty, Nigerian writer, Eloghosa Osunde, multifaceted creative, Wavy the Creator, fashion designer, Bubu Ogisi, and creative director and stylist, Ashley Okoli. Osunde’s poetic monologue, “Naomi’s Monologue”, is also featured in the film.
While announcing her directorial debut on X, Korty commented, “Directed my first film for @victoriassecret & I can’t tell you how this process tore me apart & built me back up. We’ve created something that might be a new genre of its own & I’m so proud. ‘The Tour’ out on @PrimeVideo this midnight.”
The film is currently streaming on Prime Video.
