New York Fashion Week: Up Close With Designer Angel Sanchez

Fashion design is taking center stage this week, as top designers from around the world gather in the Big Apple once again to show us the glamour and hottest trends.

Among the names glittering this year at the Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week are Latinos like Venezuelan Angel Sanchez, who has built an empire with more than 25 years as a top name in the business. Celebrities like Salma Hayek, Sandra Bullock, Beyonce, Eva Longoria and more have showcased his contemporary evening and bridal gown looks.

In this interview with MY Lifestyle Extra, Sanchez talks about what defines his success, how he overcame the stereotypes placed on designers from Latin America and how others following on his footsteps can also succeed.
