Several sexual assault allegations have surfaced against Alexander Wang, one of the industry’s leading fashion designers.
Various posts surfaced on Instagram where many female, male, and trans models came forward to share their story, detailing the assault that had been inflicted on them by Alexander Wang.
The fashion designer’s accusers, most of whom kept their identities anonymous, went public with their allegations on social media.
Model Owen Mooney had stepped forth in one of the videos posted, where he recalled an incident at a club in 2017 in New York when he met Wang who went on to inappropriately touch him in the midst of the crowd.
“I was by myself at one point and this guy next to me obviously took advantage of the fact that no one could move and he just started like, touching me up,” he said.
“I looked to my left to see who it was and it was this really famous fashion designer. Like, I couldn’t believe that he was doing that to me. It made me go into even more shock,” said Mooney.
S—t Model Management claimed in another post: “Alexander Wang has been accused of sexual assault for a few years now. Instead of letting these occurrences be swept under the rug, it is time to do something about this. Please unfollow @alexwangny & @alexanderwangny to show your support to the victims.”
