Born in Trinidad and Tobago, Al­li­son Jar­rett traded the azure wa­ters off the Venezue­lan coast for the steely blues of Lake Michi­gan when she moved to Mil­wau­kee at the age of 12. Now she con­sid­ers the city home, even though her Caribbean her­itage still in­spires many of her de­signs. “It comes out in the col­ors I use,” she says, re­fer­ring to the play­ful pip­ing and pocket squares that en­liven her menswear de­signs. Jar­rett stud­ied fash­ion at Mount Mary Univer­sity and par­tic­i­pated in Fash­ion Week for the first time last year. “I’m ex­cited to come back and see what ev­ery­one else has come up with this year.”
