On-Air-Personality Salma Nabila Phillips, has been summoned by Fashion designer, Ayo Elizabeth Olaogun of Ayo Van Elmar label, on her Instagram page that Salma owes her N168,000 while she was doing an N100,000 give away to her fans and followers.
According to Ayo Van Elmar, Salma has contacted her in August last year to design two dresses for her within 2 days which she did.
However, Salma failed to show up in order to wear the dress for fittings. Ayo took the dress to Salma’s home believing she would pay the money later.
Salma eventually wore the dress to an event and even took photos with the dress, which she posted on her Instagram page and at the same time giving credit to the designer, Ayo for the ‘beautiful’ dress. But surprisingly, she made a u-turn and said she will not pay Ayo for the dress because it did not fit her well.
“First of all, I’m not sure @deolasagoecharges that little to make an outfit in less than 40 hours. I studied fashion design as a profession, thorough German degree. And I am the best and what I do! I have a right to my prices. You could have found a cheaper alternative if you thought my services were to expensive for you.
#2. Regarding the fit, I don’t understand what you mean cuz she’s wearing it on this picture and thanking me and she showed up and partied in the pieces.
#3. We’d scheduled a fitting, she didn’t show up, I waited till past midnight. Fittings are quintessential, you’ve got to understand that.
#4. I eventually sent my staff with a mobile sewing machine to Salma, to fit in her home and make all necessary alterations. Salma didn’t attend to them, she never came out to complain to me. But she partied in the pieces? I don’t get you.
#5. I stayed up through the night with three staff members to cut off the flowers from the fabric and stitch them on one by one, by hand, to achieve the 3D look on the neckline and the shoulders, and you don’t wanna pay? Your stylist @jowysfashionconsulting and I have asked you severally over eight months, with pleas to pay up. In fact, I’ve told you to pay whatever you wanna pay! Just pay! Next post is a picture of the invoice! Your friend isn’t telling the truth about what I’d charged.”
