Sylvester West

SEWING INSTRUCTOR

Sylvester is the perfect example of the American Dream, and he lives it everyday. He started sewing with ricRACK as a junior in International High school, where he produced TWO fashion shows for Black History Month. He’s gone on to show his amazing designs at New Orleans Fashion Week and Essence Fest. He is inspired by Kerby Jean Raymond, a Haitian-American Fashion Designer.
One of my favorite mottos is “ there’s a world out there that’s going to doubt you, and try to knock you down. I fight it by working day and night, because I know I will succeed.”
