Keaton Bullen, a student from New York City, is the latest to come forward with an allegation, telling the BBC that he was assaulted by Mr Wang in a New York nightclub.

The fashion designer has strongly denied the allegations.

What did Keaton Bullen accuse Alexander Wang of?

Bullen, a 21-year-old student at New York's Parsons School of Design, says that he encountered Wang at the Fishbowl nightclub on August 24, 2019.

After bonding over their shared attendance of the New York City university the pair danced.

Mr Bullen says that while dancing Alexander Wang sexually assaulted him.

He told BBC: "All of a sudden he unzipped my trousers, put his hands in my pants and started grabbing my penis in front of a bunch of people. I completely froze.

"He then said: 'I want to take you home with me. I felt weirded out... and removed myself from the situation as fast as possible."

A lawyer of Mr Wang says they are waiting on CCTV evidence which would disprove the allegation.

Mr Bullen says he is not taking legal action but that he came forward to show support to Wang’s other accusers.

British model Owen Mooney came forward with an allegation of sexual misconduct in December 2020.

Mooney, 26, posted his allegation on social media platform TikTok.

He said: "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 touching me up. Fully up my leg, in my crotch. It made me freeze completely because I was in so much shock."

Mr Mooney has criticised the fashion industry’s silence on accusations made by "male, queer and trans" people.

DJ Gia Garrison, 24, accused the fashion designer of sexual misconduct in 2017.

She told the BBC that while at a nightclub the fashion designer "reached out his hand, grabbed my bikini bottoms and dragged it downward in front of everyone.”

She added: "As a trans woman with discomfort about certain parts of myself that I've since grown to love, I don't want someone to expose my entire body like that.”

Mr Wang’s lawyer has denied both allegations on his behalf.
