Angela Johnson

A
ngela is an award-winning, indie designer who handcrafts cutting edge, avante garde apparel under her name. Her line is divided into three distinct categories. 1) ANNUAL LINE: her directional line of womenís original, unique and limited edition items that change annually rather than seasonally. 2) REDESIGNED LINE: her core items consisting of t-shirts and button downs recycled into ball gowns and party dresses. And 3) CUSTOM DESIGNS: designs commissioned by private clients.
Angela Johnson is a clothing designer, fashion design instructor, Arizona fashion industry leader, fashion business consultant and fashion show coordinator with over 13 years in the business. Angela got her start working in design and production for X-Large Clothing, the line owned by Mike Diamond of the Beastie Boys and X-Girl, the line owned by Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth. After 3 1/2 years, Angela started a street wear line called Monkeywench with actress Christie Clark, who played Carrie Brady on the soap opera Days of Lives and friend, Dana Wilson who she met while attending the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in L.A., California.

With Angela and Dana's education from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising and Christie's financial investments, Monkeywench eventually found it's way into boutiques throughout the world. Their designs can be seen on celebrities like Pam Anderson, Tommy Lee, Christina Applegate, Quentin Tarantino, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tori Spelling, Leann Rimes, Nicki Cox, Jeremy London, Lisa Rinna, Kevin Connely, the entire cast of Days of Our Lives, and more.

In 2000, after Monkywench closed, Angela moved back to her home town of Scottsdale, Arizona and created a new line under her own name which has steadily gained popularity. She also began teaching fashion design classes at New School for the Arts. Today, Angela's designs can be found in a handful of physical and online boutiques as well as her website. She has a steady following for whom she designs custom gowns and kitschy art inspired apparel. Items from Angelaís current line will be seen on next seasonís Americaís Top Model.
Turn your old sentimental T-shirts into a keepsake ballgown you can keep forever.

Thank you so much, ladies! This was the celebration that almost didn't happen, after my husband lost his job, and my mom passed away unexpectedly. It came down to honoring the "or worse" of our initial vows though... we scaled back, and went ahead with it anyway. Everyone enjoyed the evening immensely.
Homeschoolmama, I'm with the other ladies, you did a wonderful job putting together your vow renewal, it looked like a day full of fun and love. I think the memory table and cocoa bar were brilliant ideas! and of course, you all looked great!!!
HSM- your vow renewal was beautiful. Those photos in the snow are incredible and I love the way you decorated in a lovely rustic way! Very nice!
Homeschoolmama your vow renewal looked like it was very special. Beautiful. Wish you and your hubby many more wonderful years together!
