Raymond Banks eats, breathes and sleeps fashion. The Vicksburg native is hoping to follow the footsteps of another Vicksburg great in the same field, Mr. Patrick Kelly.
Kelly is a highly respected fashion designer from Vicksburg, Mississippi who found major success in Paris, France.
Banks says Kelly is one of his biggest inspirations and want to continue honoring his legacy.
Raymond graduated from Vicksburg High School in 2012. He would continue to Alcorn State University in 2018. Shortly after, he went to design school and has now created a career that he hopes to use as a vehicle to bring the the ‘River City’ to the forefront.
