A young bride to be, was at the brink of a nervous breakdown few days to her wedding, as the perfect wedding gown she purchased some months back now hangs loosely on her body, as she had lost a lot of weight!
Her Best friend and Chief Bridesmaid suggested taking it to a highly rated Nigerian designers’ shop, in the city of Lagos, for adjustments. As expected, she was asked to make an unnecessarily high deposit for express service and was asked to come pick up on the eve of her wedding. Which was pretty risky, but she had very little choice.
On the agreed date, the anxious bride got to the exquisite store only to find her beautiful gown untouched, at the exact same spot she left it. The staff tried to cover up with flimsy excuses that it will be ready in no time. Alas! The gown was ready six hours later as an unfortunate mess, it was way too tight; the alteration was tacky, unprofessionally and hurriedly done, and the finishing horrendous. The staff even had the nerve to ask for the remaining 30% balance payment.
The Bride-to-Be, stormed out of the shop in a teary confusion her perfect gown had been completely ruined, plus, it was dark already! After several hours of search, she and her friend were directed to a meager looking, tacky little tailoring corner shop; with lit candles as its only source of lighting.
