Mom shares ‘designer’s’ idea of a prom-dress … you’d be crying too!

An irate mother shared photos on social media calling out the designer of a failed prom dress that left her teen daughter devastated.

Dee Lewis posted photos on Facebook Monday of her 18 year-old daughter Malexa Maeweather wearing the dress.

“So Kia Wagner called my daughter Malexa Maeweather THE NIGHT b4 prom to pick up her dress which she charges $300 for,” the aesthetician from Rochester, N.Y. wrote in the caption.

“R u serious.. was i wrong for wanting my DEPOSIT BACK,” she added.

The teen modeled the sheer, floor-length, white, long-sleeved dress in photos that received over 2,000 reactions on Facebook.

“My daughter was devastated and crying when she saw this dress,” Lewis told Yahoo Style.

The young girl tuned to local designer Kia Wagner after a dress she had wanted was not available. Wagner charged $300 for the creation Maeweather planned to wear to her June 2 prom.

“For a $100 deposit, Kia told my daughter that she would make her something nice with material she already owned and that she wanted to ‘play around with the design,’” Lewis said. “Malexa didn’t know anything about what the dress would look like.”

After trying on the dress and still not being happy with it, a refund was requested.

“She didn’t offer any reimbursement as a professional courtesy,” Lewis explained.

A family friend came through at the last minute and, with barely two hours before the event, offered Maeweather a dress worn by her own daughter to her prom the previous year.

Using the bottom portion, the top was redesigned with help from another designer and some extra money from Lewis.
