婚纱脱落新娘半裸 婚纱公司遭起诉

2008-07-16 09:34

  婚礼对于每个人来说都是人生中最重要的场合之一,几乎所有的新娘都希望这一天能成为一辈子最美好的回忆。但是意大利的一位新娘却不幸在婚礼上当众出丑,因为她身着的价值2000英镑的婚纱竟然在婚礼进行过程当中脱落,导致自己半裸地站在圣坛上“供人参观”,新娘随即向这家婚纱公司提出起诉,当地法庭近期即将审理此案。


  A bride is suing a designer after her £2,000 wedding dress came apart on her big day, leaving her semi naked at the altar.

  The 30-year-old woman, who cannot be named due to Italian privacy laws, claims her big day was ruined by the poor stitching, which left her bottom on display.

  According to the writ the bride was left in tears and the priest was left not knowing where to look.

  The Carry On style incident happened at Chiavari on the Italian Riviera, close to where footballer Wayne Rooney tied the knot last month with Coleen McLoughlin – who wore a £200,000 Marchesa gown.

  Details of the writ emerged after an initial hearing at the civil court, in nearby Genoa, chaired by judge Pasqual Grasso.

  The woman is claiming damages of £20,000 from the designer, who was not named but is based at Rapallo, twenty miles from Chiavari.

  Yesterday her lawyer Alberto Figone said: "This was supposed to be the biggest day of my client's life but it turned out to be the worst, her wedding was ruined.

  "She was left extremely embarrassed because the stitching of her dress came apart at the altar, slid down and revealed her bottom to the whole congregation.

  "The priest concluded the ceremony and the couple were married but of course she was not able to take any proper photographs of the ceremony because she was semi naked.

  "As a result, she has decided to sue the shop in Rapallo that made the dress for moral damages as well as financial damages, and the request is 23,000 Euro."

  The incident happened in 2006 but has only just come to court.

  It was followed by more bad news for the bride: she has now separated from her husband.
