Nollywood actress and fashion entrepreneur Mercy Aigbe has opened up on the recent “red dress saga” involving her, a designer – Rikaotobyme – and a bride @rettypetty on Instagram.
Mercy had worn a red dress made by the designer for her 40th birthday photoshoot, a dress a bride later came out to say was hers, adding that the designer had lied to her that a logistics challenge had stalled its transportation to her in Benin. The bride said she was supposed to wear the dress on her wedding day.
Following an apology by the designer and a statement by Mercy Aigbe’s stylist StyledBySeun absolving her of any fault, the actress has opened up on the case, saying that it was all the designer’s fault.
She made this known when she was a guest on TVC‘s Entertainment Splash on Tuesday.
Speaking on the issue, Mercy Aigbe sympathised with the bride, adding that no one should go through what she (the bride) went through.
She added that her lawyers are on the case, saying: “The designer put me in a very embarassing situation and my lawyers are on it.”
I’m so disappointed in her cos she did not handle the situation professionally. It’s all her fault and she needs to come out and clear the air and look for a way to compensate the bride and she also has to compensate me because I’m her client.
She lamented the fact that people began criticising her without hearing from her, saying she had no contact with the designer and all transactions were made by her stylist.
