Designed by Biya Ramar, Johnny Was is the first of six divisions stemming from the Johnny Was Collection. Created by the Levite family in 1987, Johnny Was emphasized the feminine with vintage-inspired pieces made with easy-to-care-for fabrics. All six of its divisions are meant to inspire the modern woman in all her forms with JWLA representing the quintessential California surf chick, the Biya Collection offering bold and eclectic silhouettes, Pete & Greta offering lifestyle basics with an edge, 4 Love and Liberty catering to the fashion-forward sophisticate, and 3J Workshop creating classic pieces for the modern woman. The Johnny Was collection emphasizes vintage-inspired pieces in easy-to-care-for fabrics that are luxurious to the touch. Carried in boutiques across the US and internationally, this line, as well as its brother lines, have continued to provide comfortable and stylish pieces for every woman.
Designed for women who are confident, fun, and all about attitude (not age), Johnny Was is about making an individual statement expressed through personal style. Transcending a trend-driven society, Johnny Was is on the pulse of meeting the needs of today’s women by offering unique, quality pieces. These vibrant silhouettes infused with intoxicating color combinations express harmony and beauty by the soul of an artist through her design. Each piece has high-quality garments at affordable prices, basic mix n match pieces unique enough to stand on their own, and timeless pieces that will last you season after season. Signature prints and embroidered, washable rayon georgette, silk twill and airy cotton voile have made this brand distinguished as a mainstay in the fashion industry. The ultimate creation for urban bohemians infused with originality and creativity, Johnny Was has become a favorite for celebrities like Emma Watson, Lauren Graham, Jessica Simpson, and Joy Bryant.
