Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Designer Defaults on Payment to Freelance Designer
Adrants reader and freelance designer Donna Carty claims she's been ripped off by Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Designer Bill Pull.
Bill Bull, designer of special costumes for the Victoria's Secret fashion show and dressmaker tailor for such folks as Anna Wintour and Holly Hunter is apparently ignoring a small claims judgement I filed against him and won in January. I worked two weeks on projects for the 2003 show and a cardinal Holloween costume for Annie Leibowitz's daughter, only to be given a check for half what he had agreed to pay me as a freelance fabric painter. Worse, the check was not honered by his bank, he didn't turn up to defend at small claims court, and has not answered an informational subpeona inquiring about his assets. The judgement was for $2400, a big amount for a small-time freelancer.

Bill Bull stuck us also. He bounced checks for over $13,000. We got a bench warrant but to no avail. Avoid him like the plague. He is a thief.
