    Fashion designer Anand Jon Alexander is facing accusations of molesting at least nine victims in New York after his California conviction on similar charges.

    Alexander pleaded not guilty Friday in a Manhattan court to rape and other charges dating to 2002. Prosecutors say some of the victims were minors, and some were drugged when he forced himself on them. They say he told one teenager not to report the rape to authorities.

    He is already serving 59 years to life in prison for sexually assaulting women he baited with the promise of modeling work in Los Angeles.

    The designer was featured on "America's Next Top Model" and has worked with such celebrities as Paris Hilton and Mary J. Blige.
