L Brands

L Brands


The origin of L Brands comes from a marriage. In 1951, Bella Cabakoff, a Russian emigrant, arrived at the United States and started with her husband, Harry Wexner, a women's fashion store named after her son, Leslie’s. In 1982, The Limited acquired Victoria’s Secret, an intimate fashion business consisting of six stores and a catalog, for which it paid a million dollars.
