I had the pleasure of attending the Atlanta Trunk Show this afternoon for rising fashion designer, Brett Johnson at the Neiman Marcus – Lenox Square. Johnson is currently on a national tour promoting his men’s clothing line, The Brett Johnson Collection (BJC), which he officially launched in 2013.

According to the company’s website, BJC is “premium apparel that exudes style, sophistication, and edge for the global lifestyle.” The men’s line features a variety of polo shirts, bomber jackets mixed with leather & suede as well as blazers, raincoats, biker vests, pants and shoes. Prices range from $895 to $2195.

In addition to fashion, Johnson has also worked with legendary Italian auto manufacturer, Ferrari and also served as an executive producer for Lee Daniels’ The Butler, starring Oprah Winfrey, Forest Whitaker and Robin Williams. He is also the son of BET founder, Robert L. Johnson.
