It was a very trendy controversy on social media few days ago after one @rettypety accused fashion designer Rikaotobyme of giving out her real weedding dreas to mercy Aigbe for her 40th birthday shoot.
However, the designer who later claimed that the mistake was caused as a result of dispatching error where she had apologized for causing the bride so much grief.
Meanwhile, mercy’s stylist has come on his instagram page @ StyledbySeun to take responsibility and apologize for the part he played. Clearing the air, he said the Nollywood actress had nothing to do with the situation and he wasn’t told the dress was custome-made for someone else. His post:
would like to apologize to my Client regarding the ongoing ” RED DRESS SAGA ” involving my client “MERCY AIGBE” who contracted me to style her for her 40th birthday photoshoot .
I picked up (4) four dresses on behalf of my client (Mercy Aigbe) from the Fashion Designer ” RIKAOTO BY ME” on 28th December,2017 for my client’s photoshoot of which the “Red Dress” was one. However, I was in no way informed it was a custom-made dress for RIKAOTO’s BRIDE.
This has put a dent in my client’s image for which I am truly sorry for as I handled the transaction on her behalf. I would like to clearly state that my client Mercy Aigbe wasn’t aware the dress was for anyone prior to when the news broke.
My heartfelt apologies to the affected bride as well; No bride should be without her dress on her big day. I wasn’t aware the Red Dress was hers and I am truly sorry for the disappointment she exprerienced.
