Complainant Name:
Victoria Beckham

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Victoria Beckham complained through Harbottle & Lewis LLP of London that an article in the Ephraim Hardcastle column was inaccurate and misleading when it claimed that her dresses had been ‘black-balled’ by the department store Brown Thomas.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification in the column:

Victoria Beckham’s Autumn Winter 2009 Collection will be exhibited at Brown Thomas in Dublin despite a curious announcement to the contrary reported on 25 February. ‘The label will compliment the world’s most celebrated international designers in our store,’ confirms Shelly Corkery, Head of Fashion Direction. Why should the doughty matrons of Dublin be denied the expertise of Mrs Beckham?

Report: 79
