Everything in Manuel's store on Broadway is one of a kind.
Last month the world famous clothing designer met a one of a kind customer.
"All I could see was a young man being a fool over a beautiful lady's heart," said Manuel.
Manuel says Steven Goldmann bought a purse for his girlfriend and several suits totaling $14 thousand.
You can guess what happened next.
"From what we understand everybody he has come into contact with he has lied to he has not been truthful with any of those folks," said Detective Ryan Catron with the Metro Police Fraud Unit.
Police say none of Goldman's checks cleared and Metro Livery, a Nashville limo service, didn't fare any better with his credit card or promises.
"Out of good faith I trusted him," said manager Teresa Anglin. "He just kept giving me the run-around like ADP your check is on the way your check is on the way."
Anglin says Goldmann used her company to ride around in style for most of November.
Chauffeur Tellis Bell says Goldmann claimed to have money and made even bigger boasts while showing off the 6 thousand square foot home where he was staying.
"He said he was gonna have the helicopter land in the front yard got permission from the Governor," said Bell.
It wasn't true and much like the home, limo, and clothes police say the one of a kind customer never intended to pay for anything.
"I acted faithfully on my own stepping on the banana peel taking the summersault of my life," said Manuel.
Goldmann could face fraud charges Wednesday.
He's currently being held for an outstanding warrant from Montana.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- The sounds of country music take over the City of Baton Rouge as the Bayou Country Superfest brings some of the genre's biggest names to LSU's Tiger Stadium for a Memorial Day holiday jamfest.
Headlining Saturday are Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Darius Rucker and Aaron Lewis, the former frontman for rock band Staind. The two-day festival concludes Sunday with performances by Zac Brown Band, Luke Bryan and The Band Perry.
Festival producer Quint Davis says the talent and free fan fest held before the nightly concerts help to entice attendees. In its fourth year, the festival drew 75,000 people last year.
Visit Baton Rouge executive vice president Renee Areng says Superfest has encouraged people to travel to Baton Rouge on a traditionally sleepy weekend.
