Designer called out for giving out bride’s wedding gown to Actress Mercy Aigbe for birthday photoshoot

An aggrieved bride @rettypety, whose wedding was scheduled for 29th December 2017, has called out her designer, Maryam Elisha (@rikaotobyme) for giving out a gown meant for her wedding to Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe for her 40th birthday photoshoot.

According to her after she started crying because of the incident because she had nothing else to fall back to, however the tailor who reportedly told her that the delivery guy defaulted on waybilling of the gown, suggested giving her one of her old clothes after disappointing her.

Here’s her story;

“This was too bad. On the 29th of December 2017 which happens to be a day to my wedding, a greedy designer decided to ruin my big day. I cried all day no stop. I bought this lovely fabric from @bshani_bridalfbrics and asked her to deliver to this designer @rikaotobyme after I had concluded the style and price with @rikaotobyme I made a 50% payment to her as soon the fabric got to her.

Told her its my wedding reception dress she assured me it will be ready on 26th. on that 26th i chatted her up to ask for my dress she replied saying it was ready as u can see on the chat above, she also said she will send a pics, eventually now sent a video d next day which was 27th u can also see that on the chat above. I sent the balance 50% to her on 28th when I had seen the dress and was satisfied, she couldn’t send that day cos all flights coming to Benin that day were cancelled. So we were now left with 29th a day to my wedding, I called her by 6am that morning and she told me d delivery Guy has gone to d park to send my dress that she will send the waybill details(sending details ) across shortly.

I waited till 9am no words from her. i started calling to ask for the waybill details she wasn’t taking my calls, atimes she even cut the calls. I sent several messages no response at 1pm I started crying cos the situation got beyond my control. My hubby,friends and family requested for the number and also started calling her but she obviously decided not to take any calls again.

Until 4pm when I was drained in tears she then called and was apologising that she didn’t know what to say to me that y she refuse taking calls, she continued saying the delivery guy she gave my dress to is no where to be found. when she heard how I was crying she then suggested to give me one of her old dresses for me to use for the day, I had no choice cos I was desperate I then accepted it.i got d dress on my wedding morning. I went on IG yesterdy only to see @realmercyaigbewearing my dress with the same fabric I bought and she tagged same designer @rikaotobyme.how much did she pay u to disappoint a bride on her wedding day? U are heartlessly wicked and u will sure not get away with this @rikaotobyme”

    This is terrible and this rikato designer should be boycotted for this wickedness if this is true….Nigerian service providers have no conscience ..reminds me of that MUA that lied to a bride that he was sick after full booking months ago …only to be sighted in ghana with ajimobis daughter ….horrible

    Chai! This is big news! “women matter hard to solve oh” if an actor used my suit design for a photoshoot, i’d not feel any different…Mercy might have just seen the designer’s work,liked it & perhaps requested for it, no biggie!

    Our attention has been drawn to the ongoing chaos surrounding a dress and one of our esteemed clients on Instagram and possibly on other blogs and social media sites.
    .
    We would have preferred if this matter was addressed directly to us for a quick resolution and to avoid the media frenzy, but unfortunately it wasn’t.
    .
    We hold our clients dearly and offer our services on first come first served bases with no iota of discrimination or insinuation of such.
    .
    We admit that a dispatch error occurred in the delivery of a dress to Miss Lawrentta, who was set to get married on the 30th December, 2017 and the pick up of another dress on behalf of actress, Mercy Aigbe.
    .
    Please note that both dresses were of the same style, the same colour (red) and almost the same measurement.
    .
    On realising the error on dispatch, we quickly tried to rectify the mix up. But it was too late as the wrong dress was already on its way to Edo state for the bride to be.
    .
    We contacted the bride and explained we had an issue and asked if she would be comfortable with another dress, of same kind (which was the one meant for Mercy Aigbe), the bride agreed, so we allowed the dress to be delivered as time to recall dispatch was short in relation to the time of the wedding.
    .
    We have already apologised to Miss Lawrentta, but once again use the public fora to tender an unreserved apology to her and by extension to Mercy Aigbe who shouldnt have been dragged into this.
    .
    We assure all our clients, past and future that our resolve to deliver top notch designs to clients within the country and beyond will not be compromised and the error that led to this unhappy situation has since been corrected. Thank you
