Johnson snagged a spot on the fashion map in the sixties and seventies for helming culty brands and heading up chic boutiques. She started her eponymous line in 1978 with ex-model Chantal Bacon. The two opened a boutique in Soho and sold Johnson’s dancewear-inspired creations, tapping into a punk-cum-Warholian aesthetic.
