About the Chicago-based designer:
A fashion artist born and raised in Jamaica, Shernett always dreamed of becoming a designer. At the young age of 8, she was designing clothes for her doll’s and mending her own. Shernett attended the International Academy of Design and graduated in 1998.
Upon graduating, Shernett began an underwear collection that appealed to both men and women, in hopes of using the collection to raise funding for her long awaited women’s wear collection. The successful collection was sold in over 20 lingerie stores across Ontario. Not wanting to get distracted by the underwear collection, she shifted her attention to her women’s wear line.
Shernett Swaby’s work has been featured in magazines and television, and she was a Top 5 Finalist on Project Runway Canada.
