An alleged "fashion scam" has been the talk of social networking sites since TV host Kat de Castro Tweeted a photo of a double-labeled suit on February 14. The beige suit in the photo carried the labels Bobon by Puey Quinones and the off-the-rack brand Dansen.
De Castro Tweeted, "The designer asked 30k for this suit. Pero bakit may Dansen tag? Sa SM ito di ba? Napeke kaya yung friend ko? (But why is there a Dansen tag? Isn't that from SM? Was my friend duped?)" She added, "The designer should really explain why was there a Dansen tag in his so-called original suit."
The designer explained:
Fashion designer Puey Quinones released a statement today on StyleBible.ph regarding the suit scandal (see below) that went viral this week. "I was simply pressured to create a suit and found a perfect blank canvas to develop. I know the entire situation could have been handled better but now it has just been blown out of proportion and affected so many others."
Ngayon naglabasan na ang ibang horror stories about some fashion designers.
While fashion insiders must have been the least surprised with the news, what with longtime whispers of even the most prominent designers similarly guilty of Quiñones’ crime, there has been no photographic evidence to prove the allegations until now.Ay naku ha, I am going to break my silence. (anong kala ko sa sarili ko whistleblower?) Pero mga DAHLEENGS, siguro naman nabasa ninyo na nagtrabaho ako sa fashion designer para suportahan ko ang aking sariling makatapos ng high school.
Nagreretag ba siya? Sa Fashion show lang. Manghihiram siya ng mga gowns sa mga kapareho niyang fashion designers at isasama niya sa collection niya. Ehek. Minsan nabuking siya noong isang matandang fashion designer. Ay talaga namang nagtalakan sila sa may sidewalk. Magkatabi kasi sila ng shop. Muntik na ngang magsabunutan kaya lang kalbo na yong matandang Vacla. Sabi noong sekretarya namin, awatin ko raw. Ayoko nga. Gusto kong makita kung paano sila magkurutan at sampalan. Ngeek.
