UNSEAMLY: THE INVESTIGATION OF PETER NYGÅRD
All Four Episodes Available to Stream on Friday, February 5
Peter Nygård is the fashion mogul you've never heard of. Although the Canadian "King of Polyester" was never a household name, Nygård built an international fashion empire worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Nygård led an extravagant playboy lifestyle, constantly surrounded by beautiful, young women, and owned a set of lavish homes - including a massive six-acre estate he built in the Bahamas. But hiding beneath the outlandish public persona, scores of women say, was a dangerous sexual predator who 'practiced' and 'perfected' the crime of sexual assault for decades. More than 80 women in the Bahamas, Canada and the United States have joined a class action lawsuit accusing Nygård and his companies of rape, sexual assault, and sex trafficking dating back to the 1970s. Their accusations have led to an investigation by the FBI and ultimately Nygård's December arrest in Canada for extradition to the United States.
