Mercy Aigbe has broken her silence on the scandal that erupted on social media after it was revealed that a fashion designer gave out a bride’s wedding reception dress for her 40th birthday photo-shoot.
The designer, Maryam Elisha had claimed a dispatch error was responsible after the aggrieved bride called her out, and the stylist hired for the photo-shoot claimed in his reaction that he had no idea the dress was meant for someone else.
The actress has now finally reacted on Instagram, revealing that she is having her lawyer look to it. She wrote;
“I have followed events as they unfold following a particular dress I wore for a photoshoot. First, I must say that I sincerely sympathise with the bride as this situation is painful, unfortunate and regrettably avoidable.
I hired and paid Seun @styledbyseun for the photoshoot as a stylist and got four dresses for the shoot. Seun and I were unaware that one of the dresses was meant for someone else. I am embarrassed that the designer was not professional enough in handling events leading to this moment. It is also painful that a bride is made to go through what the bride has been made to go through.
I have reached out to both the stylist and designer (whom I have never met nor HIRED directly) to express my displeasure. I have instructed my lawyer to look into this and see how best to approach this from a legal point of view without festering an already open wound. Thanks.”
