Bright lights will become brighter when The Hurd Agency models step onto the runway wearing fashions by designers Thony Anyiam and Emmanuel Adewumi.

Featured in Essence magazine, Anyiam has captured the attention of fashion lovers all over the world such as Nelson Mandela, former President of South Africa and former President of the African National Congress.

Spanning the continent of Africa and throughout the United States, Anyiam’s fashions have been worn by celebrities such as music great Stevie Wonder, best-selling author Iyanla Vanzant, world renowned minister Reverend Al Sharpton, and former U. S. President William “Bill” Clinton and First Lady Hillary Rodman Clinton.

Anyiam has, indeed, made the news and continues to dazzle audiences with his fashionable flair designs. He has made the list of 1st. He was the first Black designer to be featured in Brides and Modern Brides. Also, his fashions were featured in the movie “Contact.” Drawing from his roster of clients leaves one to conclude that his designer clothes reach the pinnacle in fashion parlance.
