As if the story of “The Dress” isn’t hot mess enough itself, now the company’s dirty laundry is being aired. According to reports, the maker of the black & blue dress was linked to child labor claims by a 2007 report in a British paper. “The Dress” was our HOT MESS OF THE WEEK last week . We thought this screamed marketing ploy all over. Now it seems the company would actually have good reason to need some positive press. Hmmm. Reportedly, the company called Roman Originals canceled their contract when the child labor issue was brought to light. it was actually happening through a subcontractor of their supplier. Whatever! Basically everything to do with damn dress is a hot mess!
