I am so excited to introduce fabulous designer Johanna Johnson, she inspires me to the core with her vintage loveliness. When I see her bridal designs, it takes me back to the 20’s and 30’s and conjures up images of the grandeur and glamour of old hollywood and in a very big way! It makes my heart flutter!
A little about the designer…
With a background in graphic design, it’s no wonder bridal and couture designer Johanna Johnson creates pieces known for their meticulous detail and graphic simplicity. She started her first collection after she couldn’t find a dress she wanted for her own wedding and she obviously succeeded in doing so crating her own! Johnson’s designs take inspiration from the opulence of old Hollywood and the 1920’s and 1930’s and translate it into gorgeous, modern silhouettes.
Raised in New Zealand, Johanna Johnson first moved to Australia in 1989 to study graphic design. After finishing her studies, she moved to London where she worked in branding and advertising. A few years after, while searching for her own wedding dress, she felt there was a gap for a vintage inspired luxury bridal wear company that carried high standards. With this in mind, she began to conceptualize Johanna Johnson couture and in 2005 opened her first store in Paddington, Sydney. Inspired by vintage flea markets in Paris, Johnson currently designs one to two bridal collections a year, as well as bridal and evening wear accessories, her Trousseau line and a lifestyle range.
She also designs veils and headpieces which you will see below! Stunning!!
