Sylvie Cachay was a rising star in the fashion industry and kind soul who overcame many obstacles in life, but was tragically killed in December 2010 shortly before her 34th birthday. Her unparalleled style, creativity, talent, and hard work garnered critical acclaim especially for collections she created at Victoria Secret, Tommy Hilfger, Marc Jacobs, Ann Cole, and her own brand, SYLA swimwear. Although Sylvie was most recognized for accomplishements in high fashion, her true passion was using her creativity, expertise, and energy to mentor others in overcoming obstacles or difficult situations.
Her magnetic energy, sincere kindness, and emotional generosity with friends, family, strangers, and animals will be what she will be best remembered for. Sylvie never ceased to lend a helping hand, brightened the day of those she came in contact with, and maintained a positive attitude even when faced with adversity. She was a loving and loyal person and that is evidenced by the outpouring of support we have received since her untimely passing. Through the love and support of family and friends, Sylvie Cachay’s legacy, spirit, and philosophy will live on.
