''You owe me N168k but doing N100k giveaway for the gram, pay me my money'' designer Ayo Van Elmar calls out media entrepreneur, Salma Nabila Phillips


This is a developing gist. Media entrepreneur, Salma Nabila Phillips(right), has been called out on social media by Fashion designer, Ayo Elizabeth Olaogun of Ayo Van Elmar label(left), over an unpaid N168,000 debt.
In a post shared on her page, Ayo Van Elmar said instead of Salma to pay for the services she rendered to her eight months ago, she is busy running a N100k giveaway on her IG page.
According to Ayo, Salma contacted her in August last year to make her two dresses within 48 hours which she did. However, Salma failed to show up for fittings. The dress was then taken to Salma at her home believing she would pay up later.

It appears Salma wore the dress to a party, took pictures, posted on instagram and thanked Ayo for one of the dress but turned around to say she can't pay because the dress did not fit well.
Salma is yet to react to this allegation. See all of Ayo's post on IG below

    First of all, I'm not sure @deolasagoecharges that little to make an outfit in less than 40 hours. I studied fashion design as a profession, thorough German degree. And I am the best and what I do! I have a right to my prices. You could have found a cheaper alternative, if you thought my services were to expensive for you.
    #2. Regarding the fit, I don't understand what you mean cuz she's wearing it on this picture and thanking me and she showed up and partied in the pieces.
    #3. We'd scheduled a fitting, she didn't show up, I waited till past midnight. Fittings are quintessential, you've got to understand that.
    #4. I eventually sent my staff with a mobile sewing machine to Salma, to fit in her home and make all necessary alterations. Salma didn't attend to them, she never came out to complain to me. But she partied in the pieces? I don't get you.
    #5. I stayed up through the night with three staff members to cut off the flowers from the fabric and stitch them on one by one, by hand, to achieve the 3D look on the neckline and the shoulders, and you don't wanna pay? Your stylist @jowysfashionconsulting and I have asked you severally over eight months, with pleas to pay up. In fact I've told you to pay whatever you wanna pay! Just pay! Next post is a picture of the invoice! Your friend isn't telling the truth about what I'd charged.
Salma's friend is alleging Ayo told Salma she can make the dresses for less than N50k but after making the dress, told her it was N168k
