This just in from Alexander Wang's lawyers: In a legal statement that reads more like a New York City real estate ad, Wang's camp says the Chinatown factory where his line is produced is a "modern, brightly lit studio with high ceilings and large windows," and not at all a sweatshop, as two former employees are claiming.
