A seven-year-old Syrian boy wearing rags was found and ejected from a high end clothing label’s show, which marked the end of Fashion Week in Paris yesterday. Officials apprehended the boy, who was eating unwanted food from the bins inside the famous Paris venue, boasting views along Avenue du Général Eisenhower. He was first identified as an intruder by keen fashion fans after they had originally mistaken him as a model showing off the brand’s latest children’s clothing line.
‘At first we thought, ‘Like, wow! Look at those rad kiddie’s clothes’, but then he started crying and kinda hid under the stairs – that’s when we realised he wasn’t, like, a model and stuff,’ one onlooker said. ‘We went and told security who helped him find his way back to the street where he lives.’
A Syrian interpreter told us the boy had really enjoyed the show, because he likes colourful costumes. However, referring to the space themed display he explained: ‘I got scared when the rocket went off because it reminded me of the rockets at home that destroyed Mum and Dad’s house and killed my little sister’, adding that he hoped one day he’d be able to buy clothes like the ones being worn by the models because they ‘looked clean and fitted nicely’.
Actors and pop singers were among celebrities and supermodels as front-row guests at the extravaganza. None of them were disturbed by the intruder. When told about the incident, one musician-designer sympathised with the homeless refugee’s plight. ‘I’m super-delighted he liked my designs and pray to God that one day he can realise his dream of wearing my clothes, though I must admit they cost a bomb,’ she said.
