German term or phrase: Welt des schönen Scheins
It's not really 'Schein' I need a translation for, but the expression: 'Welt des schönen Scheins'. I guess from the context that it's the fashion world that's being referred to but is there an English equivilent to this particular phrase

Context: brochure relating history of a high-society restaurant in Switzerland.
