Dead Fashion Designer

Sued for Sexual Harassment

2/17/2012 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Deceased Beverly Hills fashion titan Bijan is being sued for sexual harassment
Dead men tell no tales ... and they can't really defend themselves in court either ... which might be why deceased Beverly Hills fashion titan Bijan is being sued for sexual harassment by his former assistant.

Before Bijan died last year, he famously ran "the most expensive [clothing] store in the world" ... where he outfitted everyone from Obama to George W. Bush ... Schwarzenegger, Jay Leno and Michael Jordan.

But according to Brittany Anderson, Bijan was a sexual terror behind the scenes ... who was constantly commenting on her "voluptuous figure" and informing her that he "wanted her sexually."

Anderson claims she told Bijan she had a BF in an effort to curb the sexual harassment ... but instead of backing off, Bijan allegedly retaliated by demoting her.

Anderson's lawyer Keith Fink tells us, it's not surprising -- insisting Bijan had been sued for similiar claims before he died.

Anderson is suing for unspecified damages. Bijan could not be reached for comment.

If he'd let me drive his yellow & black that is parked in front of his store on Rodeo, he could have sexually harassed me all he wanted. P.S. The girls he has working at the front desk are DAMN FINE!!!

I knew Bijan's wife & she's as fine as they come. Seriously doubt this woman could hold a candle to Mrs. Bijan!

Just shows what in idiotic area Beverly Hills is; it's populated by morons & people who sue because they can't earn money any other way. Let's drop a bomb on it & wipe out the whole festering pile already...

You don't get demoted because you say you have a boyfriend, as if a personal assistant could be demoted in the first place. You never said anything until this man has been dead and buried for a long time. $$$$$ grubber!

What crap, the guy has been dead a year. He can't defend himself, does she have any proof. At least not that is provided here. Cases like this should be involve some kind of penalty against people like this.
