article article title A New York City woman is suing her fashion designer after she claims she was “hijacked” into buying clothing by her designer’s son and then pressured into wearing it without her consent.
Jessica O’Donnell, who works as an administrative assistant, filed a lawsuit against designer J. Crew in Manhattan federal court on Monday.
According to the lawsuit, O’Brien was duped into buying the pants and underwear that J.
Crew sent to her via her work email account, which was then forwarded to her father.
The suit alleges that O’Connell was sent clothing at the request of her father’s son, who later told her that the pants would look great on him.
O’Connell told The New York Post that the designer took advantage of her by pretending to be her father and demanded that she pay him to send the pants to him, but she said the father never asked for payment.
Odyssey Clothing Group LLC, the company that produced the pants, issued a statement to The Associated Press that said the company was “very disappointed” in the suit.
“We are extremely sorry for the hurt we have caused Jessica and our whole family and our friends,” the statement said.
“Our aim has always been to create a positive and authentic experience for all of our customers, and we are very disappointed that our client, Jessica O’Dell, was misled and abused by her fashion client and by her father,” it said.
Oddly enough, Odell’s father, Robert, also worked for J. & Mart, according to a statement provided by his attorney.
Omaha police spokesman Sgt. Scott Tinsley told the AP that investigators have not yet determined whether there are any criminal charges pending against O’Reilly.
