Alexander Wang Denies Sweatshop Allegations, Vows To Fight $450M Suit

Vowing to fight the $450 million lawsuit brought against him, Alexander Wang has officially denied those sweatshop allegations.

Though there were conflicting reports yesterday, WWD has confirmed that ex-employee Wenyu Lu filed a suit against Wang last month. About 30 other Wang employees have been added to the case since then, believing the company is in violation of several New York State labor laws. They want $50 million for each of the nine charges filed against Wang.

The designer denies the claims, as a spokesperson for the company told WWD:

“The company takes its obligations to comply with the law very seriously, including the relevant wage and hour regulations, the payment of overtime to eligible employees and having a safe working environment for all of our employees. We will vehemently defend any allegations to the contrary.”
