I was over perusing Denimology, and to my surprise, I read that Cookie Johnson, Magic Johnson’s wife, has started her own premium denim line, CJ by Cookie Johnson. Aimed for women with real curves, her line goes up to a size 18 and is carried only at Nordstroms.
Cookie Johnson debuts CJ by Cookie Johnson
Cookie Johnson, wife of sports legend and community philanthropist Magic Johnson, is adding an all-star entrepreneur to her resume with the debut of her new denim line Cj by Cookie Johnson. She has chosen to partner with denim legend Michael Glasser, founder of 7 for All Mankind jeans and current owner of Rich and Skinny.
An avid shopper who could afford to buy any fashion line – Cookie watched the denim market for years, frustrated that there wasn’t anything that fit her well. After hoping someone would get it right, she decided she would fill the void herself.
Cookie Johnson graduated from Michigan State University with a Bachelors in Retail, Clothing and Textiles and worked in the industry for seven years.
Now she has released her line, which is designed for women with real curves. Priced at $145 to $196 a pair, this collection features clean lines that work on any woman. I especially like their boyfriend jean with a darker wash than we are used to seeing!
You can find CJ by Cookie Johnson at Nordstrom.
