The $450 million lawsuit against designer Alexander Wang’s New York factory has been settled for an undisclosed sum. The suit, brought by two former employees, alleged that Wang’s factory was akin to a sweatshop, with 16 hour days in poor conditions for little pay. The workers claimed to have worked 80 hour weeks in a windowless, 200-square-foot factory, and were fired after complaining about the conditions. Thirty of their colleagues added themselves to the case. Wang, who launched his first full women’s collection in 2007, sells his designs in over 200 stores worldwide including Selfridges and Dover Street Market. He was the winner of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund in 2008, winning $200,000 to help expand his business. According to WWD, Wang’s spokesperson has said ‘We are gratified that this matter has been dismissed, as the allegations were unfounded and completely false’.
