The stars of ‘Gown and Out’ are feeling down and out after the riots and looting in Bev Hills destroyed their high-end dress shop … and the damage couldn’t have come at a worse time.
Patrik Simpson, who stars in the reality show “Gown and Out in Beverly Hills” tells TMZ … he and his husband’s dress store, Pol’ Atteu Couture, was completely destroyed during Saturday night’s riots, and they’re estimating they suffered more than half a mil in damages.
Patrik tells us he and his hubby, Pol Atteu, had just restocked the entire store before Saturday night’s violence, as they geared up for a big reopening. The store had been shuttered for months due to the coronavirus pandemic.
As you can see, it looks like a bomb went off in the store … and Patrik says looters stole over 100 dresses, including custom wedding dresses waiting to be shipped to brides and some gowns intended for the Daytime Emmys.
It’s pretty sad … Patrik says his husband sews all the dresses by hand, so Pol has hours of work ahead of him as he tries to recreate the custom gowns the rioters stole.
And, in the wake of the damage and destruction, Patrik says he and Pol are wondering what they did to deserve such a mess. They’ve had the store for over 25 years, and have seen their decades of hard work gone in a flash.
