Who is Mason?
Designing and creating has always been on the short list of Mason’s passions. A native of Charlotte, North Carolina and an educational product of Howard University in Washington, DC, he has always dared to be different. After unsuccessfully attempting to find a brand that was sophisticated while expressing his individuality in college, he decided to make his own accessories. People took notice. It was then that he had a vision for his own men’s line that would merge elegance with cutting-edge style for emerging young professionals like him.
His first collection debut in the fall of 2007 was well received. Armed with the assurance that his brand had the potential for staying power, he took some time to fully develop his new collection. Like any artist, Lowry is both expanding and refining his craft and intends to make his mark in menswear. He has had the pleasure of designing for a variety of clients ranging from emerging professionals to A-list celebrities. In 2012, Lowry relocated to New York City to further build his name and his brand. His goal is to establish a groundbreaking menswear clothing line, crafted to appeal to individuals across all ethnic, economic, and geographic platforms.
Listed in the official Fashion Week Calendar, Mason Sylvester has debuted collections in New York Fashion Week since 2011. Over the last five years, Mason Sylvester pieces have been available both online and in Caramel Boutique located in Washington, DC. In June 2012, Mason Sylvester received the Best Ready to Wear Menswear at the Fashion Awards in Maryland.
While continuing to build the brand, the designer has worked with celebrity stylists such as Misa Hylton and celebrities such as Fonzworth Bentley have worn his pieces.
