90 Day Fiance alum Fernanda Flores is in hot water over a failed collaboration with a small clothing brand. From leaked texts, fans are saying that the ex-wife of Jonathan Rivera took advantage of a struggling small clothing line. Now, she is speaking out in hopes of putting an end to the issue.
90 Day Fiance: Fernanda Flores Asks Free Clothes From “Struggling” Business
Looks like Fernanda Flores’ image as an influencer gets tarnished by an unsuccessful project with a clothing company, Bright Side Boutique. The 90 Day Fiance celeb faces criticism over her “shameless” request for free clothes. In exchange for the “stuff”, she agreed promote the brand on social media.
Screenshots of her conversation with the company leaked, showing details of the arrangement. It seems Fernanda reached out first, asking for clothes (for free), so she could promote the company with her 90 Day Fiance fame. She asked for three “cute outfits” she can wear while in LA. The clothing store agreed but in return, she should do at least two posts promoting the clothing line.
Clothing lines, both big and small, are struggling during the pandemic. Sales of clothes are way down and many companies are going out of business. With profits down, giving away clothes and paying the shipping can be burden on small clothing lines.
Fernanda Called Out by Fans
Judging by Fernanda Flores’ first responses, she’s eager to work with the brand to get the outfits. The 90 Day Fiance cast member even made follow-ups on her request, seemingly impatient for the items to arrive. It seems, the small boutique sent her about $500 worth of clothes for free and paid for the shipping.
But things took a different turn when Fernanda started wearing some of the pieces without giving credit to the boutique. She shared a video of herself rocking a cream-colored jacket, which was part of the package sent to her by the fashion company. However, Fernanda did not mention the store’s name on her page.
The boutique immediately called the attention of Fernanda for not tagging them. The screenshots revealed they reached out to the 90 Day Fiance veteran multiple times, only to be ignored.
While Fernanda Flores was very quick to reply to the company when she wanted the clothes, it appears she may not have been as responsive after she got what she wanted.
The small company even told her that they are just a small business struggling to survive during the pandemic.
90 Day Fiance Star Denies Duping the Clothing Company
However, Fernanda Flores quickly denied the allegations against her. The 90 Day Fiance celebrity insisted that she did follow through with their deal. She also shared a screenshot of her post promoting the products as seen in the picture above.
Fernanda did say that she used the jacket during the photoshoot without crediting the store. She said she was focused on more important things than the outfit she was wearing at the time. She pointed out that she was busy with other stuff that actually “brings money on [her] table.”
The 90 Day Fiance cast member claimed she tried to add credit when they reminded her the agreement. But she supposedly failed to do so because the posted “reel” cannot be edited anymore. But fans were not buying Fernanda’s explanation. Some pointed out that she could’ve easily made a new post (or many new posts) and tagged the brand.
