Toronto’s ‘fashion Santa’ Paul Mason has been replaced for the holiday season!!
Model, Adam Martin will replace the original fashion Santa that you always see at Yorkdale Mall in TO. The original fashion Santa was in his mid 50’s and this new one is in his mid 30’s and it looks like majority of people are not happy with this change.
One person wrote, “Hell Naw! We want Paul. I’ve decided not to do any of my Christmas shopping at Yorkdale this year because of this BS.”
Check out some of the other comments that strongly dislike this new fashion Santa.
It’s not just the new fashion Santa that’s bugging a lot of people there’s also a lot of controversy with this change. According to Yorkdale marketing director Lucia Connor they actually really wanted Paul to be fashion Santa again. She said, “We reached out several times over the summer and we did not receive a response. We wanted to work with Paul Mason again.”
But Paul told Global TV’s “The Morning Show, ” “That’s their story. I’ve been in the business a long time, 30 years relevant, the face of Toronto Men’s Fashion Week, TOM*. I don’t think there’s a moment that I would ignore phone calls.”
