JP Singh, the head-to-toe branded Surdy who is nowadays more famous, rather infamous for being incriminated in the notorious MCI scam is back to what he does best – showing off his moolah power with crass consumption.
But JP seems to have diluted his loyalty to Louis Vuitton and moved on to Armani. Reason though has got to do more with Armani’s sales girl, Lipika than the merchandise. Recently JP spent a whopping Rs. 15 lacs shopping at the Armani store at DLF Emporio and in return the outgoing salesgirl doesn’t mind being JP’s arm-kandy. In fact JP has got Armani a new customer, his friend Pawan Vora, who courtesy his Guthka money is also a big-spender. Atul Midha should really promote this girl Lipika for getting good sales. I don’t know if it is Armani’s new sales strategy – to lure in customers with a perk thrown in as a dinner date with the sales girl. I spotted JP and Lipika at 360 degrees at The Oberoi having a cozy dinner!
In fact Pawan Vora, JP’s pal had the luxury of celebrating his birthday, cutting cake and popping champagne within the Armani store at Emporio. I doubt if many have had this privilege at Armani stores worldwide. Way to Go, huh!
Remember the breakaway Delhi Fashion Week initiated by former FDCI, ED, Sumeet Nair? Yes, it’s off now and not to worry, not coming back to harrow us with two-two fashion weeks. Why I’m talking about DFW is that the gentleman- JP Singh who sponsored DFW (not entirely) has been arrested by CBI on bribery charges. Well our Louis Vuitton’s desi brand ambassador – JP was a fixer and he was arrested for facilitating a Rs. 2crore bribery to the President of Medical Council of India, Ketan Desai for clearance to a Medical College in Punjab.
JP was a darling to the fashion fraternity. Besides sponsoring Rs.50lacs for DFW, he used to treat our freeloading models to Dom & Moet at the Diamond Lounge @ F Bar. JP Singh literally gave 25% sale to LV in India. All the Euro-Trash hookers got LV bags from JP as gifts. In fact when he used to walk in to DLF Emporio, all the store managers used to lure him to their stores. Such was his Tashan.I wrote about him in HT some 8-9 months back, about his fixing ways with 2 Ministers from South of India so JP got highly pissed. Many of his freeloading model friends & fashionistas and a senior cop subtly threatened me too. But you guys know I have this bad habit of writing the truth so I cared a damn…
Anyway hope all those who had loads of fun on JP Singh’s account will go pay him a visit in Tihar. The poor chap deserves this much for all those bottles of Dom Perignon in LV Bags! Wadddyaa Say???
