Fashion victim

Fashion victim

In an attempt to save the industry, the South African Clothing and Textile Workers’ Union has been making sacrifices on behalf of its members: in October, the union agreed to a 30% reduction in wages for new employees.

A Noseweek investigation, however, reveals how futile such concessions are unless major stores like Stuttafords are more discriminating about those with whom they choose to do business. Boutique queen, Inge Peacock's pattern of non-payment wears thin as she refuses to settle the account with Cape Town garment factory R&R Anonymous Knitwear.

Congrats on successfully defending the action brought against you by the 'victim'! Does she not know that through her application she has heaped shame upon herself in virtually every newspaper as opposed to just Noseweek readers. Serves her right!

Editor's Note
As a matter of fact Mrs. Inge (Ingrid) Peacock isn't the victim in our story... her victims are those she didn't pay.
