Is it a dress or a curtain?
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
