Yes, Victoria’s Secret is a fast fashion brand.

Victoria’s Secret is an American lingerie specialist retailer and the number one lingerie brand in America. They also own La Senza, as well as PINK, a lingerie sub-brand aimed at teenagers. Victoria’s Secret was founded in 1977 by white American businesspeople Roy and Gaye Raymond, and today is listed on the New York Stock Exchange and owned by shareholders. The business brings in $6.1 billion in revenue annually across its 1400 retail locations and 25,000 employees.

Victoria’s Secret is a fast fashion brand due to the speed of production and scale of clothes that it sells.
