Ever so on-trend, inclusive, and fashion-forward, his offerings have found their way into the wardrobes of Shaun Ross, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys, just to name a few. It wasn’t always like this. A brush with a life-threatening illness, myocarditis, left Adonis fighting for his life at age 22. “I almost lost my life about five years ago. I got really sick and was diagnosed with heart failure. I was watching myself die and doctors telling my mom I wasn’t going to make it. Every day I prayed it would get better. My body was only using 15% of my heart. The only thing I had in the hospital with me was my fashion sketches. I would sketch a garment daily because that’s how much I loved fashion. I was planning on leaving all my designs behind for the world to see.” He miraculously started getting better slowly, learning how to walk and breathe again. His doctors are amazed he was able to pull through to this day. “I am living proof that anything is possible. If you enjoy doing something and are willing to die for it, there’s nothing that can stop you.”
