In an exclusive story by PEP last Monday, June 11, it was said that John talked to the entertainment site, and shared how disappointed he was that Kim's team informed him that the gown he made will only be worn by the actress if she wants to.
Here's the gown that John made for Kim:
John, dismayed by the statement from Kim's team, decided to just back out.
After which, Kim's stylist, Patty Yap, released a statement clarifying that the actress did not have anything to do with the "gown" decision.
Patty said, "First of all, as mentioned, I did not commission him (John Herrera) for this project. I believe he had arrangements with FAMAS about providing gowns and suits for the FAMAS hosts."
The stylist continued, "Secondly, it was absolutely okay with Kim to wear his creation, but it was John who backed out, as mentioned on his last message."
Patty added, "Lastly, I believe the miscommunication was with FAMAS and not with Kim’s camp as he was coordinating everything with them, including the fitting schedule, as mentioned by him and the FAMAS representative. Kim is totally unaware of this; all she knows is there's a gown from John."
Patty also related that working for Kim as a stylist for three years now, never did the actress display any negative behavior on the clothes she'll wear for events.
Monday night, Kim shared the article with Patty's statement, and mentioned John in a tweet, which read:
"I hope this clarifies everything sir John (@johnherreranews) and I really hope to meet you personally not through your PEP statement or with a third party. We are only doing our job which is our passion. Much love and respect sir. ️"
The next day, John also posted a tweet addressed to Kim, saying, "Thank you for the love and respect, Kim (@prinsesachinita). We at John Herrera value our work as much as the women who wear them. We wish you only the best."
Here are the dresses that Kim went on to wear at the FAMAS 2018 Awards night:
