Designer Spotlight | Ulla Johnson

Despite fashion’s focus on minimalism, I’ve always considered myself to be more of a maximalist. I’ll take vivid prints, intricate lace and ornate beading over streamlined silhouettes and neutral hues any day of the week. One designer who never fails to make me swoon over their unabashedly luxurious collections is Ulla Johnson. Founded in 2000, this Brooklyn-based babe’s eponymous label has since earned itself a huge celebrity-studded following and tons of recognition from the fashion industry’s elite. With a strong focus on handmade touches and artisanal craftsmanship, each collection is characterized by breathtaking fabrics, natural fibers, lush textures and opulent embroidery. Ulla’s designs look as though they could come directly from the pages of a storybook, filled with kings, queens and castles guarded by dragons. These pieces cost a pretty penny but when you look at the artful craftsmanship, you will agree that they are worth every penny. After all, how can you put a price on a fairytale?
