Accused of sexual assault
Keaton Bullen, 21, a student at New York’s Parsons School of Design, alleged to BBC News that he was assaulted by Wang at a city club in 2019.
It comes as prominent attorney Lisa Bloom says that she now represents 11 men with misconduct allegations against Wang.
Mr. Wang vigorously denies all the accusations made against him.
Bullen, then 20, was with a friend at the Fishbowl club in New York City when he says he ran into Alexander Wang on August 24, 2019 at around 11:30 p.m.
He told the BBC that they had initially talked about his common soul, the Parsons School of Design in lower Manhattan, where Bullen is currently studying interior design.
Wang then invited the couple to his table and offered them vodka by the bottle before finally taking him to the dance floor, Bullen said.
In the early hours of the morning, Mr. Bullen alleged, Mr. Wang sexually assaulted him.
“All of a sudden he unzipped my pants, put his hands in my pants and started grabbing my penis in front of a group of people,” he said. “I froze completely.
“Then he said, ‘I want to take you home with me,'” Bullen alleged. “I felt strange … and I removed myself from the situation as quickly as possible.”
Paul Tweed, one of Mr. Wang’s attorneys, said that he was currently waiting for CCTV footage from the night club which he said: “His client believes he will fully refute this accusation.”

Mr. Bullen said that he felt a duty to speak out in support of others who had brought charges and were being called “liars.”
He is not taking legal action and said he did not want his photo used, fearing that the public would accuse him of seeking attention.
The accusations against Wang previously emerged in December after a British model claimed on TikTok that the designer had groped him during a concert at a New York City nightclub in January 2017.
In the video, which subsequently went viral, Owen Mooney, 26, said: “I was alone at one point and this guy next to me obviously took advantage of the fact that no one could move.
The allegations about Alexander Wang’s conduct first circulated online four years ago.
Nick Ward, 28, who works in construction, alleged on Twitter that Wang had grabbed his crotch at the Brooklyn Mirage nightclub in New York after midnight on September 10, 2017.
Mr. Wang denies the claim and having been at the club that night.
DJ Gia Garrison, now 24, described a similar encounter with the designer on Facebook.
He recently told the BBC that they met in the VIP area of the Slake club in Manhattan in February 2017 during one of his favorite monthly party nights called Holy Mountain.
Avant-garde themed, for the occasion he proudly recalls that he was wearing a large red cape that his friend had made, over the bikini bottom and thigh-high boots.
“I like being able to show my body and feel comfortable and free,” he said. “There are no judgments and it is a space where everyone can love their body and embrace themselves.”
Around 2:30 am he recalled that he went to the VIP area with his friends and shortly after, he was introduced to Mr. Wang.
“I was dancing close to him when he reached out, grabbed my bikini bottom and dragged it down in front of everyone,” almost revealing his genitalia, he alleged.
“As a transsexual woman who is uncomfortable with certain parts of myself that I have since grown to love, I don’t want someone to expose my whole body in that way,” he added.
Mr. Wang’s lawyer denied the accusation and said that his client “had never grabbed any woman” in this way.
One of Lisa Bloom’s clients, David Casavant, recently alleged to The New York Times that Wang had pulled down his pants and underwear at a New York club that same year.
Ms Garrison, who also works as a model and music producer, said she did not believe in “canceling culture” but has since refused to wear Alexander Wang’s clothing lines on set.
“I think it’s dangerous and it doesn’t solve any problem,” she said. “What really matters is whether the person really works on himself, educates himself and decides to make a change.”
In a statement issued in the New Year, as the allegations mounted, Wang, 37, said: “Seeing these lies about me being perpetuated as truths has been infuriating.
“I have never engaged in the egregious behavior described and would never behave in the manner alleged.”
