Jimmy Kimmel Pranks Fashion Week Attendees into Talking About Non-Existent Designers


Alright, looks like we have to add another rule onto our "How Not to Be a Dick at Fashion Week" list: Don't pretend to know what you're talking about if you don't--especially if a man with a microphone is filming you.
