Why is the year 1986 on PINK at Victoria's Secret?

I have worked at VS for a little over a year, and still no one at work knows. I know that the company was established in 1977, PINK was not established until 2004, and no it does not have to do with the baby boom thing. I think i know, actually a manager finally told me, but i just want to see what you guys come up with.


It has nothing to do with the movie. Pretty in Pink.

    Because PINK is a collegiate line, when it was introduced, most of the people born in that year would be in college. I think they would actually be graduating by now.

    Source(s): Ok, well I was actually curious so I did my research, it looks like 1986 was the year Grace Nichols joined the company, the success of the brand is attributed to her.
