Deon Angelo calls out Aubrey Styling for being unethical

Renowned fashion designer airs out his grievances against stylist on social media.

While the Namibian fashion industry has been growing and flourishing in the past years, it has often been branded with complains of unprofessionalism, manipulation, and exploitation.

Fashion designer Deon Angelo took to Instagram to express dissatisfaction with stylist Aubrey Tjerivanga better known as Aubrey Styling whom he accused of exploitation, dishonesty and vowed to distance himself from anyone working with the stylist including in any project including the upcoming Windhoek Fashion Week.

Angelo explained how he borrowed Aubrey Styling his garments in good faith to style Miss Namibia’s contents. Aubrey Styling has since then failed to return the garments and has evaded all attempts by Angelo to return the garments.

The designer later found out that Aubrey Styling was reusing his garments to make money by dressing his other clients in the same garments without his permission and has even gone as far as to alter one of the dresses.

“This underqualified self-proclaimed exploiter stylist took my f****ng event-grade dress to another designer to alter,” Angelo seethed.
This according to Angelo, this is not the first time the stylist has manipulated and exploited other artists.

In response to the accusations, Aubrey Styling has issued an apology to Deon Angelo for the poor manner in which the incident was handled.

“I regret that our professional relationship has deteriorated for this,” he wrote.
He further apologised to other designers, models, and clients who he said may ‘have received less than professional services from him.’
“I am taking this as a learning curve for myself and my business. I am aware that this may affect our current/potential clients’ trust and I vow to earn it back the best way I can,” read the statement.
