At this years’ Durban July, Boity went against the agreement with Quiteria & George and wore a dress designed by Cinnel store, a brand that has dressed the likes of K Naomi, Melody Molale and Pearl Modiadie.

Boitumelo ‘Boity’ Thulo and fashion brand Quiteria & George had an agreement that for the whole of 2016 Boity would only wear garments designed by them.

At this years’ South African Music Awards, Boity received flack from social media when she posted a picture on Instagram of herself in a Quiteria & George dress. The floral embroidery on the dress created a reflection that made people to believe that the dress had exposed her private parts. Boity responded saying, "I mean, it was so clearly photoshopped, anyone can see that. I would never wear a dress that was so skimpy as to show my vagina.”

At this years’ Durban July, Boity went against the agreement with Quiteria & George and wore a dress designed by Cinnel store, a brand that has dressed the likes of K Naomi, Melody Molale and Pearl Modiadie.

According to Quiteria, they had already planned Boity’s outfit for the Durban July but she failed to inform them in time that she will be wearing something by another designer.

He said Boity did not call or inform them or her manager that she would be wearing someone else’s designs. Quieteria said he is not sure if she was angry because of what happened about the SAMA dress. “This makes us look bad and it makes us feel bad because she also pays us. Boity did not call to inform us and we have a verbal contract with her to dress her for the entire year,” said Quiteria. He went ahead and expressed his frustration about the amount of time that goes into making an outfit. ”We are not forcing Boity to only wear our stuff, but because we had an agreement, the team was ready. All we needed was her to inform us in time,” said Quiteria. The designers said there was no love lost and that they are still on good terms with her and don’t want to spoil the relationship over one outfit.
