    Adreain Guillory is a young African American Demi-Couture Designer from the small town of Saginaw, Michigan. Guillory, surrounded by the strong Black women within his family, made his love of fashion inevitable. His great grandmother, the matriarch, became one of his most prominent inspirations through her southern Baptist elegant and graceful ways. With clothes in every closet of her home, Guillory would get lost in her wardrobe of dresses, tailored suits with skirts, and church hats.  The women's power within his family by expressing themselves through their attire motivated Guillory distinctively. So much so, he began illustrating his inspirations. This budding passion centered around sketching would soon send him to The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2015. While there, his interest in illustrating evolved into creating garments. Soon after, Guillory won the Fashion Council Scholarship award during his junior year in 2018 and then went off to participate in the Driehaus Fashion Initiative for two years in a row. His work has been published in many publications, including Normcore Magazine, Vogue Italia, Koove Magazine, Lucy Magazine, and Feroce Magazine to name a few. His love of Blue Collar and High Elegance with a hint of Japanese sensibility is embedded in his practice. Fantasy stories/films and classic Anime feed his creativity and always provokes romance and adventure in his works. Guillory is currently based out of Chicago, IL, and is working on bringing more of his dreams to life.
