Tess Johnson creates flowing garments with unique prints and interesting textures. Her clothes are draped on the body, allowing the fabric to work with the shapes of a body – not against it. Her designs highlight the fabric and the figure creating an inspired unison between the wearer and the garments.
In every collection, Tess creates custom prints and stripes to ensure unique and special garment design.
Tess graduated from Parsons, The New School for Design in 2011 with a BFA in Women’s Wear Fashion. While at Parson’s Paris in 2010 she was introduced to couture techniques and draping which have become trademarks of her designs.
After graduating, Tess was invited to participate in Lifetime Network’s 24 Hour Catwalk. Her challenge to create a “Glamorous Camping” runway show was chosen the winner by fashion icons James Laforce, Derek Blasberg, Cynthia Rowley, and Alexa Chung.
