Tanzanian fashion designer has called out socialite Hamisa Mobeto for lying about a designer dress she hired for a photo shoot a week ago.
Reports say that the mother of two allegedly rented the dress from a fashion designer after reaching an agreement.
According to Tanzanian media a designer by the name Aliyah rented out a dress to Mobetto which she wore a week ago then went on to claim was part of her collection.
“Ni kweli nguo ni zangu kwani Mobetto alikuja kwangu na kunieleza kuwa anataka achukue nguo zangu avae alafu atasema zimetoka kwake ili anitangazie biashara, na kusema kwamba akipata wateja aniletee, mimi nilikataa, nikasema kama anachukua nguo anitangazie kwa jina langu la sivyo nimuazime tu arudishe,”(It’s true the clothes are mine, Mobeto came to me to hire the outfits saying she would use her name to help market me, I refused and told her if she would not use my name to market me then she could only borrow them and return.) Aliyah was quoted by Ijumaa Wikienda a Tanzanian news site.
Hamisa Mobetto has however said that all the feud surrounding the dresses was just a misunderstanding.
“Jamani mimi nilishaeleza sana na hata nilipoweka kwenye mitandao niliandika kuwa nguo hizo zimebuniwa na yeye sasa mimi nashangaa watu wananichafua kwenye mitandao,” said Mobetto. (I already said that the dresses were designed by her, even when I uploaded the photos on social media I said that. I am shocked that people are talking ill of me over this matter.)
