The Haute50: Black Fashion Movers & Shakers of St. Louis That Are Putting The City on The Map

Black in St. Louis Fashion Haute5 List

Can you guys believe that it’s been a year since I’ve launched Black in St. Louis Fashion?! Yes, a full year. Around this time – I wanted to get a group of fashion creatives together in my city who were doing the damn thing. Up until my editorial, there had NEVER been a mainstream roundup only featuring Black fashion creatives & professionals in St.Louis, and I changed that narrative. Never did I imagine that it would take off as it did, being published in St. Louis Magazine, Ladue News, St. Louis American, & KSDK which has led to us becoming a full blown community!

So – in keeping with tradition and continuing my promise of highlighting and celebrating Black fashion creatives in St. Louis, here is this year’s list, the Haute50!:
