Fashion is what you make it. Rules are meant to be broken; stand aside from the crowd. -Adagio Smith
The local St. Louis fashion powerhouse, Adagio Smith, first encounter with designing began early at the age of 15. Starting with the interior of his bedroom, that infatuation then amplified in Adagio’s love of fashion. Experiencing with different fabrics and textures inspires the designer. “Once inside a fabric store, I can get lost and spend hours upon hours.”
In 2014, Smith won an Emerging Designer Award which ultimately displayed pieces from his fashion line, Guilty Conscience, in Macy’s and a prize package worth over $6000. The brand Guilty Conscience has presented in 10 fashion shows around the city from 2012 to the present. With his new website in development, clothing from the current season’s fashion are available through email and more Instagram @GUILTYCONSCIENCE The highlight of the line includes leather, zipper details, studs, and black and silver with red accentuated.
