Singer-turned-fashion designer Pearl Lowe has dismissed speculation her latest clothing range was produced in a British sweatshop. The Powder frontwoman was flooded with complaints from followers on Twitter.com after a TV expose investigated poor working conditions of U.K. factories which produce lines for national retailers.

But Lowe insists her designs for British chain Peacocks are manufactured in a "legit" Hong Kong unit. In posts on her Twitter page, she explains, "Want to put all of your minds at rest, the factory I use for my Peacock range is in Hong Kong, not the one used in last night's C4 Programme."

"I have also been there a few times & I can promise you that it is a totally legit family run business."

It is very unlikely that the factory is in Hong Kong. This is most probably the supplier, not the factory. The factory will probably be in China and will therefore likely have the same issues as other Chinese factories. These issues are largely the same as those highlighted in the Dispatches programme in the UK units. Sorry Pearl.
