While most may believe fashion shows are all about the Haute couture, however often, it’s the person wearing the ensemble and their poise and élan that makes heads turn. In that regard, a young fashionista took social media by storm by creating ramp walks with not high-end fashionable clothes but everyday objects like buckets and water pipes. His hilarious take has now started a laughing riot online and even celebrities can’t get enough of it.
In a video doing rounds across social media platforms — TikTok to Reddit — a man is seen donning just a humble tee and a pair of boxers walking down an alley by his home with all sass. Recreating some of the wacky fashion statements, he struts like a pro. Be it ‘donning’ a wooden bench on a ladder around his neck or a rugged plastic shade as a skirt, netizens are impressed with his confidence. So much so, for one of the looks, he is even seen doing the catwalk with a woman clinging onto him by his waist.
Check out the hilarious video here:

Identified as Shaheel Shermont Flair (@shermont_22) from Fiji, the 24-year-old internet sensation has been creating fashion shows for his audience on TikTok. Recreating dozens of looks from fashion shows, he wore a creative hat, ingeniously using items that can be easily found around our homes but not so much on the ramp.
In his other videos, he uses broken objects like a mess kitchen door and even a big tyre. Although items may change from time to time, the his style and panache remain constant.
People on social media were elated to see him nail every look and the expressions of models to the T. Even celebrities like Raveena Tandon couldn’t loving it saying, “This is the best I’ve seen today!”
Hahaha this is the best I’ve seen today! https://t.co/vmsdY5VmTj

He ate though. The walk was consistent no matter how heavy the object https://t.co/2aBm9ouAKg

This man has absolutely nailed the walk. The way his torso swings while his feet are steady. A supermodel be jealous.

The way he walks, the way he holding the things, and his face expression, totally makes him like a professional model 😆

I lost it crying once he came out with the bench 🤣 I used to enjoy wearing weird things in shows back in my days (space suits, bell pepper dress, antennae..), but sadly never got to wear ladders and gates. Also, nice strut 👏

As Flair continued to create a buzz online, he is not the only one in the recent past who garnered attention for recreation of fashionable looks with mundane items. Last year, Tripura-based Neel Ranaut went viral for his posts creating some of fashion world’s most iconic looks using leaves and flowers.
