Oobah Butler of fake shed restaurant fame is back and this time he’s turned his attention to the world of fashion. Paris Fashion week is iconic amongst A-Listers and fashion inner circles. It’s the place where you find all the next big trends, the crème de la crème of fashion weeks. Georgio Peviani was getting loads of attention at PFW.

Buyers from Milan wanted his denim in their stores, the inner-circle wanted him at their showrooms and A-Listers partied with him at night. But the man doesn’t actually exist.. does he? This is the time Oobah Butler faked his way into Paris Fashion Week.

  1. Confidence is a necessary condition, but not a sufficient one, in this case. The guy was naturally artistic. A random car seller can’t pull that off

    I have a feeling that the fashionable people in the capital of Hunger Game is based on those in Paris.

  2. You didn't fake exactly. The brand was created in the 90's. And you used it in 2018 (ie, about 18 years later). So the Parisians you met have heard of it, that's why they were welcoming.

    They were probably wondering all those years when will Pavion show up at our gathering.

    Now you've made it hard for the real Pavion to go there, but he seems not interested in doing so. He's just interested in the sales his brand is raking.

  3. This men in dresses 💩 is getting out of hand. He talks about & struts around in a dress like it's a new pair of slacks. I find it all appalling. On a side note, this just shows you how vain & fake the fashion world really is. All you need is to be attractive & have no personality. Good job
