You reminded of Barney from TV show "HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER." Seeing Barney fake himself as an astronaut, poet, architect, and etc in the show, I felt ridiculous that the girls believe and slept with him. And now, after watching the video, I found myself dumb because IT ACTUALLY WORKS and IT WORKS VERY WELL WOW!

Why anyone say it's knockoff, it sounds not at all like Armani. Giorgia a common name in Italy, and many names there end with i.

john Dango (1 month ago)
That's it? The connections are more important nt the fuckin models. He jiped the guy. Js so he can use his name since the logo was catchy.
This designer kinda reminds me of Gianni Versace, both men had passion for fashion (they didn't care who or what wore it, but how the person felt wearing that outfit). I really admire people who truly have a strong passion to risk everything but to show it all, never dying but never forgetting the name. I do hope his brand will become well known and he will see his business succeed.

this reminds me of the art show where someone dropped their eyeglasses and everyone was oohing and aahing about how artistic they looked. Yes, true story. Why I can't stand most museums and art galleries.

I'm sorry but how is he never going to acknowledge the fact that he's probably telling all of these people he's being followed around by Vice news as a new designer

i am wondering about is this story even real knowing the fact that Oobah is good at faking stuff :D
Gros Point Rouge (1 month ago)
When you think about it, the plot was more than credible. Just the fact that he had an entire filming crew following him everywhere made him look 100% legit.
