E-mail 'Belanja Sakan' Rosmah pula didedah..


Wartawan fesyen Patty Huntington dalam blognya Frockwriter mendedahkan urusan e-mel untuk membuktikan kesahihan laporan yang ditulisnya mengenai isteri Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak - Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor yang ‘berbelanja sakan’ membeli pakaian pereka eksklusif di Sydney, Australia.


Buat kali pertamanya, Huntington menulis dengan panjang lebar di blog beliau dengan dijelaskan secara terperinci tentang apa yang berlaku antara beliau dan pereka Carl Kapp serta ‘publicist’ beliau, Little Hero, sebelum berita berkenaan dipetik oleh akhbar The Sydney Morning Herald pada 21 Januari.

Huntington berkata bahawa beliau pertama kali mendapat maklumat pada 16 Januari oleh seorang kakitangan Littele Hero yang bernama Holly Beer yang menghantar e-mel kepada penulis blog itu menceritakan mengenai pembelian 61 helai pakaian oleh Rosmah dari kedai Kapp.

Dalam e-mel Beer ini kepada penulis blog itu, beliau menceritakan pertemuan Kapp dengan Najib dan Rosmah di penthouse Hotel Darling Hotel. Beer mendakwa ketika itu, pakaian berkenaan dipesan untuk majlis Rosmah yang dikatakan adalah banyak.

"Pakaian perlu disiapkan pada tempoh sebulan selepas percubaan kedua. Semua pakaian perlu diubah-suai supaya berlengan panjang, dengan memastikan tidak ada bahagian pergelangan kaki atau tangan yang terdedah.

"Beberapa fesyen yang dipesannya itu termasuk skirt Emilia dan blaus berlengan panjang.

"Dia (Rosmah) juga meminta pakaian tambahan lain selain 61 helai yang telah dipesan itu. Ini adalah campuran AW12 (Autumn Winter 2012) dan SS11 (Spring Summer 2011)," tulis Beer.

Here is the first email received, datestamp January 16th at 14.44:


“Hi Patty,

I hope you are well.
Some news for you:
I thought you may be interested in one of Carl's latest fans, Malaysia's First Lady, Rosmah Mansor. Carl received a phone call from her staff while she was shopping in Pitt St asking if there was parking in Paddington for a limousine. They came straight
over where Carl had a private appointment with Mrs. Mansor, going over styles,
colour and fabrics. Carl then prepared a presentation for her on New Year's Eve
at the hotel Mrs. Mansor was staying out, and she chose every one of the 30
colours Carl presented. In total Mrs. Mansor ordered 61 pieces. Carl also was
introduced to PM Najib Razak. All pieces she chose are to be made from Carl's
signature stretch silk, and to be made bespoke after taking her measurements.
A few of the styles she ordered included the Emilia skirt and long sleeve
blouse below.
I would also be happy to offer you an AW12 style to run with the story, look book is attached.
Interesting, no?!
Kindest,

Holly"

Here is the second email, received at 16.47 on the same day. The hyperlink to The Darling penthouse was included by Beer:


“Hi Patty,

I just spoke to Carl for some further information:
He
visited Rosmah, and her PM husband on New Year's Eve at The Darling's Penthouse
Suite in the Casino (http://www.thedarling.com.au/sydney-hotel rooms/penthouse/) for the fitting and presentation. The pieces are for her everyday occasions,
which are many. She meets some incredibly influential people, including most
recently Michelle Obama so Carl is thrilled that she is such a fan. He said she
was incredibly lovely, and she is flying him to Kaula Lumpar mid-February for a
second round of fittings. The pieces need to be completed in a month from the
second fitting. All pieces had to be altered to be with a long sleeve, with no
bare ankles or wrists.
She is already asking for more pieces in addition to the 61 ordered, which is a mix of AW12 and SS11.
In addition to this, Carl has had a great season, his sales are extraordinarily 80% up post his debut Fashion Week show last year. His made-to-measure has definitely made him a favourite go-to and is his greatest point of difference - particularly against the onslaught of online stores.
Attached are the lookbook imagery, the following have already been published on Pages Digital.
Let me know of anything else you need,

Holly”

Huntington juga mempertahankan tulisan di blog beliau dengan mendedahkan bahawa Kapp diterbangkan ke Kuala Lumpur bulan lalu untuk pakaian berkenaan dicuba. Beliau sebaliknya dalam satu kenyataan kepada Malaysiakini pada 25 Januari menafikan perkara itu dan berkata bahawa lawatannya ke Malaysia adalah sebahagian daripada projek ‘Jelajah Asia’ dan bagi mendapatkan bahan untuk rekaannya.

"Kapp beritahu saya, dia (Rosmah) minta saya untuk datang ke KL untuk mencuba pakaian berkenaan.

"Saya (Kapp) berkata 'jika anda (Rosmah) membayar tambang perjalanan, pasti (saya akan datang) ... saya tidak percaya bahawa saya akan diterbangkan ke sana bulan depan semata-mata untuk pakaian itu dicuba untuk hanya selama sejam setengah.

"Dan kemudian diterbangkan sekali lagi pada keesokan harinya," katanya mendedahkan, sebahagian daripada petikan perbualan dengan Kapp pada 17 Januari lalu.
