HomeEventsVeritia Simone & Co. Presents ‘A Cause of Elegance’ Fashion Show [PHOTOS + VIDEO] Ms. Bels Wednesday, April 15, 2015 Events, Fashion & Beauty, Feature, Runway Xclusive, The Runway 2 Comments Fashion designers showcased their collections this past Friday, April 10, for the “A Cause of Elegance” Fashion Show. The event was put on by Veritia Simone & Co. and held at HOBI (House of Blended Ink) Studios, which was a last minute change from the show’s original venue. Unmoved by the location switch up and rainy weather, the fashion show went on smoothly with a packed room of supporters. Veritia Simone & Co, along with designs from House of Fleur Fleur and Envy By Muah, were presented during the fashion show. The refreshing aspect of the clothing is that each group of looks were of stark contrast to one another. Fabric choices, color schemes, and garment types were essentially different, which kept the audience eager to see what’s next. The inspiration behind the designs were shared by the fashion designers themselves during a pre-show Q&A session. The woman behind House of Fleur Fleur, for example, shared that she travels to Paris quite often and that her garments are made with an European flair in mind. Envy By Muah’s creative Miss explained to the audience how fabric choices are key to creating her designs. Tim the Poet and other artists performed during intermission.

I ordered a custom Prom Dress for my daughter from #VeritiaSimone. Made the 1st payment 3/6/15. They never followed-up after the payment was made. I emailed several times finally Someone responded stating I needed to email the gown department. I did that, they stated fabric samples would be sent as well as a measurement form. After not receiving anything from them after a few weeks. I emailed and asked for a refund. They explained I was not entitled to a refund. I didn’t understand why, being that they had not delivered on anything they stated they were going to do.. They did not Send a messurement form nor send fabric samples” We finally received the fabric samples in the mail 4/13/15. a whole month and days later… The lack of professionalism and communication has been a terrible experience to say the least. Being that refunds are not permitted on custom Prom gowns even after this company has shown nothing but lack of professionalism and communication, and absolutely no integrity what so ever. I finally spoke with 1 of the owners Amber Freeman who assured me my daughter dress would be delivered on time and she was at the fabric store. I continued to ask for a refund, cause I had no faith they would deliver and I deserved one being they dropped the ball from the beginning. She insisted they where going to start working on the dress they had been busy due to a fashion show, and the sooner I send the remainder payment they would have the dress to me by the end of the week and I would receive a tracking number within 24hrs after payment was made. I made the payment I did not receive a tracking number, I had to email her to get it.. She provided me with a tracking number that states the label was created and it’s in PRE SHIPMENT meaning USPS doesn’t actually physically have a package to ship; the label was only created, now that was 4/17/15. keeping the story short.. It’s 4/29/15 the tracking number still say PRE- SHIPMENT. My daughter prom is May 2, 2015 and we have NO DRESS! I’M CONFIDENT IN SAYING BEWARE BEWARE THIS COMPANY IS FULL OF LIES! OH! Amber made perfectly clear that she had celebrity clients and my Lil $400/$500 meant nothing they wouldn’t allow that to jeopardize her company… Well actions speak louder than words… No Dress No Refund No Explanation I contacted square and informed them of #VeritiaSimone #fraudulent activities as well as #USPSFraudDepartment so I have also disputed the charges with my bank I’m confident they will refund my Lil $470 due to #veritiaSimone lack of #integrity and professionalism to not deliver my daughters prom dress…. #VeritiaSimoneAreTrueScammers #DontBelieveTheHype #YoyReapWhatYouSow VeritiaSimone & Co.

It’s unfortunate that you had to go through this.
