However, what she got - albeit in a red and peach colour - lacked the neat cut and fitting seen in the original design.

The video which has since gone viral was reshared via @asoebibella's Instagram page and sparked mixed reactions.
Check out some comments below:
"Did Sis ask for the color combination? The lace in the original picture alone, sells for about 12 to 15k per yard depending on location, the type of feather used was also very different. Know your tailors capabilities in order to avoid something like this. You can't pay #22k and expect to get the same as what you ordered."
"This 2022 choose appropriate fabrics, pay appropriate designers with the skill the right amount of money and where possible order from the original designer. So all of us can rest."
"You actually got what you ordered na. I think the fabrics is the issue."
"Why didnt you pay the original designer.. you find cheap tailor and you got cheap work simple."
"People on here are clowning sha… 22k to balance 8k (literally 30k) for a dress and you still can’t get it right?!!!! Nahhh… please, let’s be honest the amount she paid should get her a verrryyy nice dress, a good tailor/fashion designer will get it right! It is obvious the tailor is not so good♀️♀️ Not everyone will patronise the big names, whom we have all agreed at some point are doing too much with their prices."
"30k for that dress. Is the original fabric not more than 30k?"
"Honey you got what you paid for, if you really wanted to get this style with this fabric it wouldn’t cost 22k ❤️"
What I ordered: Designer speaks out, says clients gave wrong measurements
Aderonke Enoabasi popularly known as Rhonkefella recently put up a post reacting to a now-viral video of a client who ordered a two-piece ensemble and ended with an oversized outfit.
In a video shared on Tiktok, the client identified as Oyin Kemi shared a clip of the green outfit she had ordered and then another clip of the oversized outfit she received.
Although a brief search through Kemi's Tiktok shows that the video is no longer up, Rhonkefella came across the video and reshared it on her page as she spoke out about what happened.
