    exactly, doesnt look like what she originally designed which even looks better than what the cheerleaders have on.

    Chai I cover my face with shame, was it a carpenter dat made dos clothes cus dey look nothing like wat she did, d poor girl(designer) would not have claimed she made it if not 4 d 250k. Pele dear, ur innovation was lovely but poorly executed.

    the uniforms look nothing like her sketch. there are similarities alright alright but i know a lot of people who rooted for her design here on BN won’t be happy with the end result.

  13. MAMA PUT

    February 10, 2012 at 7:36 pm

    Congratulations!! Your sketch looks lovely. However, the actual dresses? What happened? They didn’t even take the design of the top on board and the material looks tacky and cheap. It looks horrible, wow! I mean, this is not a true reflection of her ability or vision. I don’t think they did her justice. Very sad

    Reminds me of when we would have marching/inter-house sports skirts sewn back in the day. The jagbajantis tailors used to mess us up and it always ended up being one nonsense teacher that thot that she could sew. Congrats Maureen! They didn’t do you design justice sha.


    February 10, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    Errm, did I miss something??? Where does it say in the article that BN made the clothes o? Ehn? Uche is now a tailor and Glory is a seamstress, abi? 😀 Cos I don’t know exactly why you are now blaming BN :s

    February 11, 2012 at 12:09 am

    the only thing they took from the sketch is the red and blue

  24. Theresa

    I actually prefer the design the ladies are wearing and not the sketches by Maureen. The new design is sporty and modern, whereeas Maureen`s designs resemble blouses that should only be worn with two-wrapper!

    Her design is way above wat was made. Whoever made the outfit totally disregarded her design…

  32. Dee

    February 11, 2012 at 2:05 pm

    Her design was way better than what the cheerleaders have on. Good thing you guys also edited the title of the photo. If I may ask, what was the point of the competition if they were not going to use the winner’s design? The outfit the cheerleaders wore are you sure it is not similar to any of the other designs that did not win? because if it is, the person can take legal action…

    [email protected] and jagbajantis laughing in tears!! Na real Aba tailor.

    Congrats to maureen,really creative sketch.of course the contractor for the cloths figured he/she could go cheap and avoid the “complex” sketch.

    February 12, 2012 at 3:58 pm

    Hmmmmn, a bit dissapointed. Was eager to see how this will play out. Not in all cases do organizations allow customers decide. So I anticipated the results will be positive and blow me away. This was a poorly executed plan by PEPSI. I just lost respect for the brand#justsaying#

  37. ronnie

    nigerians, we just like to fall our hands. how does this roadside tailor made outfit look like the beautiful sketch? anyways, congratulations maureen.

  40. fokasibe

    February 13, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    Wow! That wasn’t her design!!

  41. Ginika

    February 13, 2012 at 2:24 pm

    LMAO @ Aba tailor, carpenter and atilogwu…

    I can just imagine how Maureen feels, thats like an insult. If after I finish designing and then I give you to make the dress, you give me that?! I go vex.
