2018 Best Clothing Designer

Allison Daroie, Paridaez

How to dress for a day that includes a corporate meeting, a yoga class, and drinks with friends? This common conundrum is what led Allison Daroie to create her line of transformational apparel. Each piece in the collection transitions into a completely new article of clothing: One wrap dress, for instance, triples as a cardigan and a boatneck frock with a plunging neckline in the back. Sold at Daroie’s adorable shop on Beacon Hill, the minimalist styles are all made in New England in a premium blend of rayon, nylon, and Lycra, and come in a basic color palette for easy mixing and matching.
