• Lisa Bloom will be representing "several men" accusing Alexander Wang of sexual assault
  • Bloom said the disturbing mistreatment of models needs to be exposed
  • Gloria Allred's daughter offered to confidentially speak with other victims and witnesses 

High profile attorney Lisa Bloom is representing the men accusing fashion designer Alexander Wang of sexual assault.

Bloom, daughter of famed lawyer Gloria Allred, said she is "proud" to "represent several men with allegations against Alexander Wang" in a statement to People. The allegations against Wang spread on social media last week.

"The fashion industry is long overdue for a reckoning of its frequent, disturbing mistreatment of models. I’ve represented many alleging sexual misconduct in recent years," Bloom said.

"Models are not props, and they have the same rights to workplace respect as everyone else. I thank everyone who has reached out in support, and I’m happy to speak for free and confidentially to any others, including witnesses."

Bloom has a successful career and one of her biggest accomplishments was when she represented women whose sexual harassment claims led to the firing of Bill O'Reilly from Fox News.

The sexual assault allegations against Wang started when model Owen Mooney came forward in a TikTok video recalling an encounter with Wang in a crowded club in New York City in 2017. He claimed that the designer groped him in the genital area.

Following Mooney's story, several anonymous stories were shared online. Many of them claimed to have experienced the same encounter with Wang. They accused the fashion designer of making them drunk and taking them to his hotel room. They also alleged that he was sexually aggressive and forceful.

Wang vehemently denied the allegations in a statement released to People Thursday. He insisted that those claims were "grotesquely false."

"Over the last few days, I have been on the receiving end of baseless and grotesquely false accusations. These claims have been wrongfully amplified by social media accounts infamous for posting defamatory material from undisclosed and/or anonymous sources with zero evidence or any fact checking whatsoever," he said in a statement.

"Seeing these lies about me being perpetuated as truths has been infuriating. I have never engaged in the atrocious behavior described and would never conduct myself in the manner that’s been alleged. I intend to get to the bottom of this and hold accountable whoever is responsible for originating these claims and viciously spreading them online."
