“I have followed events as they unfold following a particular dress I wore for a photoshoot. First, I must say that I sincerely sympathise with the bride as this situation is painful, unfortunate and regrettably avoidable.”

“I hired and paid Seun for the photo-shoot as a stylist and got four dresses for the shoot. Seun and I were unaware that one of the dresses was meant for someone else.”

“I am embarrassed that the designer was not professional enough in handling events leading to this moment. It is also painful that a bride is made to go through what the bride has been made to go through. I have reached out to both the stylist and designer (whom I have never met nor hired directly) to express my displeasure.”
