is showing some African prints
for beachwear. His newest
project is a handmade line of
evening clothes with prices
ranging from $800-$2,000,
available at Roz & Sherm.
His designs feel like
cashmere, wash like polyester
and wear like steel. Sanchez
relates a Phil Donahue story that
supports this statement.
"I was appearing on Phil
Donahue's show in the morning,
when the producer called and
told me that Phil wanted to wear

shower and hung it up to dry.
On the morning of the show, the
robe was impeccable. It looked

become a fabulous demand,"
adds Sanchez.

interview Sanchez wore a black
sweater, black pants, mauve shirt
and black tie which accented
his curly, silver hair.

and draw clothes," admits
Sanchez. Although he was
expected to go into his grand-
father's shipping business,
Sanchez decided to go to Paris
at age 17 and study at the
