I probably carried like 50 pounds worth of trench coats. She was very demanding,” Lalani said of her former boss, The Row’s head technical director. “I was doing the work of three interns. I was talking to her all day, all night. Emails at nighttime for the next day, like 10 p.m. at night. The head technical designer was like, ‘Go get my Advil.

In court documents, Lalani details grueling 50-hour weeks with no monetary compensation or credit of any kind.
