Fashion Designer Toure Releases a Statement About Tahiry’s Attack During NYFW
Just days ago Tahiry was hospitalized after being attacked by a production manager. The altercation happened at New York Fashion week during a fashion show event. The production manager had physically attacked Tahiry, and then broke out into a huge brawl. The designer that was hosting the event has released a statement regarding the fashion show disaster.
New York, NY (September 10, 2014) – Toure of Toure Designs can no longer remain silent and would like to clear up the rumors and speculations going around about the brutal attack against one of his celebrity models Tahiry Jose that occurred on Monday September 08, 2014 at the Helen Mills event space.
“I would like to take the time to clear my company’s name, as this was not a Toure Designs show. We were part of the Angola International Fashion Show event. The incident didn’t take place backstage, it happened in front of the venue.
The Production Manager of the venue Carlos Gonzalez, seemed to already be against this event happening before the altercation took place. I would like to apologize to my fans and celebrity attendees that came to support me for this unfortunate incident. This was something that was totally not in my control. We at Toure Designs do not support or condone violence of any type let alone against women. We wish a speedy recovery to Tahiry. “
