Top designer, Alexander Wang, has been accused of exploiting workers in a sweatshop in New York's Chinatown and hit with a $50million lawsuit, according to a report in the New York Post.
The suit, filed in Queens Supreme Court, claims that injury, illness and other problems resulted from the harsh conditions.
One of the claimants - Wendyu Lu, 56 - states that he was even "hospitalized for several days after he passed out at his workstation because he was forced to work 25 hours without a break and was warned that he would be fired if he didn't follow orders."
According to the New York Post, representatives for the designer had no comment as no lawsuit had thus far been served.
We have contacted the brand for an official response and will update when we hear back.
