'Red dress saga' tailor called out by yet another client for giving out her dress for a photoshoot

A few months ago, social media was buzzing with the news of how a certain fashion designer gave out a client's wedding reception dress to Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe for her photoshoot. Well, she's back in the news for doing the same thing to yet another client.

Identified as Rikaoto, this celeb fashion designer seems to be getting famous on social media for all the wrong reasons. A lady who goes by the name @queenisthetittle on Instagram, has taken to the platform to share her experience with the tailor.

According to her post on, she had contacted the lady to make her a certain dress for her 4th wedding anniversary, sharing details of she wanted the dress. She even went ahead to make payments.

However, what was meant to be her dress, exclusively was given out for a photoshoot. According to the client, the designer shared photos from a photoshoot using her dress. She confronted Rikaoto who denied it, saying it was just a similar dress used. See her post below:

I’m a very private person & I never talk about my personal stuff at all. But this is just too much for me. So i shared my ideas with this fashion designer @rikaotobyme for a gown i wanted for my WEDDING ANNIVERSARY, Sent her screenshots of the designs i wanted & the type of material to use on my dress. Gave her a deposit, She then got the blue material i wanted, Showed it to me & I told her to go ahead & make the dress. Long story short, She sent me a video of the dress she had made for me & pictures on WhatsApp."

The post below shows the dress used for the photoshoot and screenshots of their conversation prior to the whole drama.

Imagine the surprise, Checking her page only to see @zina_zokufa putting on my dress. Just couldn’t believe my eyes so i decided to call her. She didn’t pick up then i sent her messages on WhatsApp, She replied saying that ‘She made 2 similar dresses’ Smh! Just told her to refund my money & keep her dress. She hasn’t refunded my money yet. How much did she pay you to disappoint a customer that has supported you for over 4years? Imagine giving out my dress you well know was meant for my wedding anniversary. All this woman does is get money from people all in the name of making dresses for them & once the dresses are ready. She will just give them out to celebrities for photo shoots. Your just a fraud.

Unlike the last time she was involved in the controversy over the red dress saga with Mercy Aigbe where she apologized, Rikaoto is yet to speak on the matter.

Very few people were surprised as her reputation for breaking the rules of client privilege precedes her.
