Christchurch reviews dress code

26 September 2007

NEW ZEALAND -- As reported by the New Zealand Herald: "Christchurch Casino says it is reviewing its dress code and was already doing so when it received a complaint from a woman who says she was "humiliated" after being asked to cover her ample breasts.

"English tourist Helen Simpson, 33, complained publicy after she says she was 'absolutely humiliated' when a woman casino staff member told her to cover up or leave early last Saturday morning.

"Casino chief executive Brett Anderson said today he received a letter of complaint from Ms Simpson about the same time as the newspaper.

"...However, having taken over the chief executive's role at the casino just six weeks ago he said he had already marked its dress code as an issue requiring his attention.

"'Probably one of the biggest comments I've had since being in Christchurch is about the (casino's) dress code and how it has slipped,' he said.

"...Christchurch Casino once had what was regarded as the strictest casino dress code in New Zealand, banning blue jeans, for instance, but had relaxed the rules in recent years.."
