Drama took over Instagram recently, when a newlywed lady called out a top Lagos-based fashion designer, Tope Fnr, for making her a ‘nonsense’ dress instead of the one she wanted for her wedding.
According to Instagram user Amariya B Yosa, Tope Fnr whose outfits have been sampled by Beyonce, was contacted by her friend who wanted to copy the above style for her wedding reception dress.
The duo had agreed that she wanted the style despite the fact that the body shapes of the model and the bride were different. They also agreed that the bride would part with a price of N105,000 for the dress.
Drama however ensued after the bride took delivery of the finished product of her dress prior to her wedding and was shocked to see that not only was it made with cheap materials, it was also a terrible fit on her and didn’t look anything like the work of the western designer Tope Fnr had been asked to copy.
Yosa said they had wanted to handle the matter away from social media, but the designer’s reactions engineered the social media meltdown.

Following the designer’s claims that her client was heavily pregnant on her wedding day, which affected the design of the dress, the bride and her friends went on to provide pictures of her from her wedding, which showed she wasn’t. See the pictures below:
