FEMALE INSTINCTS: Brooklyn-based designer, Ulla Johnson, didn't take the typical academic route (or thought process) to fashion. She studied Psychology and Women's Studies at University of Michigan and later found her natural design instincts taking over, with a great deal of influence from her studies of female nature. Johnson took her learning on the road, picking up knitwear and production in her native New York, before developing her first extremely wearable line of silk separates and knits in Fall 2007.
Today, seven seasons later, Johnson continues to make a collection that walks bridges the gap between collegiate and young professionals with smart tailoring and obtainable (and affordable) fabrics. For Spring 2010 she features the ever-popular Breton stripes, slouchy silk T's and cuffed trousers and sexy draped mini-skirts that bring your a-typical rolled sleeve school boy blazer from day to night.
