ABOUT ANGEL SANCHEZ

Angel Sanchez developed an appreciation for fashion at a young age surrounded by dress forms and fabrics in his mother's Venezuelan atelier. His first love was architecture, which he studied and practiced professionally for many years, but he soon found himself drawn back to his mother's work. Armed with the knowledge of form and structure from his architectural work, Sanchez founded his fashion house and quickly rose to fame throughout Latin America, and expanded internationally when the company headquartered in New York City. Today, Angel is renowned worldwide for eveningwear designs as well as an acclaimed bridal line and is a proud member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). Devotees include Salma Hayek, Taylor Swift, Giselle Bundchen, Beyonce, Iman, Eva Longoria, Sandra Bullock, Brooke Shields, and Elizabeth Hurley.
