You are walking around Samsen on one of your last days in Bangkok, some "very friendly" lady approaches to you and tells you its Buddha day so tuktuks will charge you less. She gives you a tour plan and of course a fashion house is included. You go, see what they made before look okay, the fabrics look okay then you select something from their catalouge.
I told the guy who helped me (Arjun) that I am leaving in two days so he said he would come for the fitting the next day anytime I tell him to. You of course have to pay a deposit.
The next day I call the guy, not only the delivery was an hour late on my last Saturday night in Bangkok, it also was brought by some delivery guys and not Arjun himself. I looked at the skirt I ordered and it was absolutely nothing like the one I saw in the catalogue. It was a sloppy piece of fabric attached in an unprofessional way. I asked for my money back and these delivery guys caused a very unpleasant scene in the hotel lobby. Then they told me to get a tuktuk to the shop so I might get my money back. I refused knowing two girls going to some scammers shop alone in the evening was not such a good idea.
15 minutes after when we are about to leave the hotel to go out and try to have fun in this so-called city of smiles, Arjun guy knocks on my door and asks me to get the skirt and pay and maybe he might change it and deliver it the next morning. I of course did not believe him. After a long, heated conversation he leaves the hotel promising to bring my money back.
I have never heared about my deposit again, and like I mentioned before, I would not go back to this scam shop alone to deal with bunch of greedy guys.
In Thailand, locals see you as an ATM. Every "good" advice always has a catch. This shop is a perfect example of this stereotype. DO NOT GO THERE.
