Since it’s inception in 1987, JOHNNY WAS
has been embraced by free-spirited
and confident women who are drawn to the brand’s unique signature aesthetic:
a juxtaposition between vintage and modern,
reserved and unrestrained,
ttraditional and innovative.
Each item is inspired by
and historical dressmaker techniques…
…founder Eli Levite
was surrounded by music in his home
in the late 1980’s.
His children often listened to the infectious
Bob Marley refrain,
“Johnny was a good man…”.
It was then Levite’s first garment was designed
and JOHNNY WAS was born.
