Last week I had the pleasure of attending an event at Neiman Marcus with Cookie Johnson, designer of CJ by Cookie Johnson Denim. She is debuting her new Spring/Summer line. So why am I interested? Cookie is not only a fascinating business woman, AIDS awareness spokesperson, but also makes sure all her denim is manufactured right here in Los Angeles. Cool huh?
Cookie says manufacturing in Los Angeles is key because it’s the birthplace of premium denim and the best resources in the world are available here. It also doesn’t hurt that manufacturing in Los Angeles creates jobs for Americans and reduces her shipping carbon footprint Cookies advice for Earth Month is to use reusable products. Swap out paper towels for dish towels, eliminate paper napkins and use beautiful fabric ones. Right on Cookie!
I asked who the CJ Denim customer is and she said, “Real women with real bodies.” I love that! And it’s true! These jeans look just as good on a size 0 as on a size 18. Among her favorite people to dress are Oprah and Angela Bassett.
So here’s my lowdown on CJ Denim. I love them! The fabric is so soft it feels more like wearing sweats than denim and the fit is fabulous! They come in dark denim washes as well as a bunch of fun colors. I’ve been rocking the green ones for Earth Month. And I love the price point on these jeans. My favorite style is $124 which is fabulous for a premium denim that you’ll be living in! You can find them in at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills or on their website.
