Dear Fashion PULIS,
I would like to share with you an experience that I had with this menswear designer. I have been following you since day one when you posted the Puey Quiniones Scandal. Initilaly, I did not want to share this with anyone but I heard that this designer has other victims as well. So let this letter be a warning to all future clients of this designer.
I fell in love with his work when I attended one of his fashion shows so I met up with him and asked him to design me a suit for my cousin's wedding. He seemed nice and pleasant. After designing the suit, he discussed the materials with me, took my measurements, and asked for a down payment.
After that meeting, I never heard from him again. I kept calling and sending him SMS messages for weeks, but he never replied. He only got in touch with me through SMS message a few days before my cousin's wedding asking me when I am free for fitting. I told him that the wedding will take place in a few days and since he was not replying to my messages, I decided to buy a suit instead. I also texted him if he can return the down payment to me but he never replied ever again.
A few weeks ago I met up with my cousin who works for a magazine and she laughed at me when I shared this story with her. Apparently this designer is known for that. She told me that when one of the brands commissioned him to do some accessories for the show, he never delivered the items. She also mention horrible stories of clients from the province who gave him eighty five thousand for the down payment and never got the suits that they ordered. The family members asked him to return the money and he asked then if could pay in installment. My cousin and her friends from the fashion industry found it very ironic because he was able to shop in Prada abroad and even stage a fashion show overseas.
It is so sad that it is hard to trust people nowadays. I hope you can share my story with your readers so that they will not have the same experience. Thank you very much and more power to Fashion PULIS.
