I contracted Michelle Okosun (Preme Butik) in June 2012 to create a clothing line for me. She agreed and we drew up a contract. She requested $6,100 for her time and travel to Italy plus $1982 for production of the line.
I paid that in full. She then said that there were late fees that were incurred that she claimed to have paid but never showed me a receipt but in good faith I re-imbursed her for that as well in the amount of $710. $150 for hangers & tags I have never seen.
She then began to complain that her attorney wouldnt give me the final paperwork unless I paid for her late fees for that which she claimed came out of her retainer which she refused to show me any documentation for. To avoid conflict I paid that as well totaling $535. The line was supposed to launch October 19.
On that day she said my clothes were delayed in customs and this went on a month different excuses but no product. [continued below]....
..... So I asked to attain item from another vendor seperate from our contract in China named Chung (Bqueen) I ordered 12 dresses, 12 pants & leggings and few other items she told me the total was $1999. I wired the money from my acct to hers.
She said it would be 7-10 business day on October 12 and to this current day I have not recieved 1 piece from her. I have inquired daily but get different excuses each time. I have not received anything she has my money totaling $11,600 and its been 3 months and I dont have anything.
I want a full refund. I believe she used my money to finance reinvest in her business and has been leading me on to buy time. I am done with the situation and want a full refund. I have a contract stating what I have paid and her emails requesting these amounts. I have the wire transfers to show transaction history.
Here it is almost a year later and I havent seen 1 piece of merchandise. She stole a celebrity client from Me Draya Michelle (Basketball wives) on top of my money, closed her store and claims to be moving to the Galleria. With the help of my money, I reported her to the BBB still with no resolve I am currently paying an attorney to get my merchandise and some of my money back. She pretends to be sweet & inncocent but in reality her & her father Charles Okosun are just a couple of Nigerian scam artist. I will fight her until the end... Dont be fooled by the act she puts on. She does BAD BUSINESS!!
