Is it a dress or a cur­tain?

The Star Early Edition - - FRONT PAGE - STAFF RE­PORTER

SHE HAD trusted the de­signer with her wish to have a beau­ti­ful, sexy dress com­plete with a slit.

When it was time to de­liver, the cus­tomer was pre­sented with a dress that looked like a cur­tain.

Yes­ter­day, the dress was posted on so­cial net­works in­clud­ing Twit­ter and In­sta­gram.

The pic­tures were posted on both so­cial net­works by @Slytheone, the cus­tomer, who had ap­proached de­signer @Re­filwe­mata­bane to make the dress.

In a con­ver­sa­tion on In­sta­gram about five days ago, @Slytheone had re­quested @Re­filwe­mata­bane to de­sign a dress that she needed be­fore to­day.

@Re­filwe­mata­bane agreed and the two ex­changed What­sApp num­bers. How­ever, Twit­ter users made hi­lar­i­ous com­ments about the dress, with some com­par­ing it to a cur­tain.

@Slytheone had dis­closed her un­hap­pi­ness about the dress, post­ing pic­tures of it on Twit­ter and In­sta­gram in the morn­ing.

Later in the day, at 12.14pm, @Slytheone wrote: “I re­ally un­der es­ti­mate the power of so­cial net­works. To­day I was proved wrong. I would be ly­ing if I said I didn’t feel bad, but this could have been re­solved dif­fer­ently. Your cus­tomers make you, if you fail to please them, you suf­fer. Now to hold up my part and re­turn the dress. It sucks coz things like this af­fect other IG sell­ers who are ex­cel­lent that I have dealt with.”

@Slytheone later posted a pic­ture of an SMS bank no­ti­fi­ca­tion in­di­cat­ing that @Re­filwe­mata­bane had paid her back R550 for the dress. How­ever, she was still owed R100.

Twit­ter users called for jus­tice, with #Jus­ticeForSly trend­ing most of the day.

@PrincessKatlee: But guys we can’t al­low that pink dress to be in Sly’s pos­ses­sion to­mor­row. It must go back where it came from. #Jus­ticeForSly

@Te­bo­go_ZA: I would like to have a one on one with the maker of the UPO… look her in the eye and get some clar­ity. #Jus­ticeForSly

@Te­bo­go_ZA: @Nonku101 @Sly_Lu­natic I’m avail­able if you need support to re­turn. #Jus­ticeForSly

@Mis­s_Palee: Me I want Sly’s de­fence team. #Jus­ticeforSly

@par_ex­cel­lence1: Ha­ha­ha­hah Aha­haha bathi her dress is a tent. I’m in tears for REAL. #Jus­ticeforsly.

A BIG MISS: The pink dress that caused a fuss on Twit­ter and In­sta­gram.
