Frantic to make her dream come true, he writes an email to Balenciaga. His email professes his wife’s love for their brand and knowing his social status appeals if they could send him anything. His email written to Balenciaga is met with distaste over his non-prosperous appeal and instead is returned with a beautiful dress.

Marge falls in love with the said dress and takes the day off to wear it. Homer, all the while tries to protect the dress from calamities; aware that neither of them would be able to pay for the dress; let alone for the damage done to it for return. The dress is returned back to Balenciaga with a mournful letter from Marge.

This letter strikes a chord at the headquarters of Balenciaga and Gvasalia apparently; decides to help them. As they soar the skies, new outfits are designed and made. Gvasalia offers to fly the residents of Springfield out to Paris. He fails to get the offer across to them and thus, instead gives them a bait of KFC instead to come visit Paris.

Thus, begins a whole musical montage of fittings and fashion display for Springfield residents including the Simpsons. This Simpsons’ episode also featured Kim Kardashian, Anna Wintour, Kanye West and Justin Bieber.

A New Fashion Line

Demna Gvasalia; who has been featured in this Simpsons’ episode; has proclaimed his love for Simpsons, adding to the praise Simpsons’ satire.

Surely the episode must have been received well at Balenciaga’s since several outfits featured on the Simpsons’ episode have been set to release.

Out of everything that happened on the episode, Balenciaga released merchandise that took inspiration from Demna Gvasalia’s associate, the designer on the plane with the checked outfit, the black sneakers, Kim and Kanye, Justin Bieber, Anna Wintour and almost all of Springfield’s residents who modelled on runway.
