This Is the Woman Behind the Most Insane VS Angel Wings

Now that you’ve seen all the wildest looks from the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, straight from its taping in Shanghai, it’s less than a week until it all comes together for the big primetime TV premiere. But while you’re waiting, let’s back it up all the way to July, when we first met with the woman responsible for creating arguably the most iconic pieces worn on the runway. Sorry, we’re not talking underwear—we’re taking wings.

Marian “Killer” Hose—yes, you can call her Killer—has been working with Victoria’s Secret for years, and on Monday alone, several of her creations were worn by the likes of Jasmine Tookes, Lais Ribeiro (in the $2M Fantasy Bra no less), and Sui He. Above, take a look inside her studio in Brooklyn, where the magic happens before an Angel gets her wings.

Up next, take a look at what the first Victoria’s Secret fashion show looked like. Hint: It was very different.
