Johnny Was opens in town

Bohemian chic women’s clothing store Johnny Was is opening its first Michigan store in downtown Birmingham at 115 S. Old Woodward on Saturday, September 12. “The historical Birmingham Shopping District is the perfect location to debut Johnny Was in Michigan,” said Rob Trauber, CEO of Johnny Was. “It’s a great mix of upscale retail and dining, and also has beautiful tree-lined streets and architecture. When we search for a location for a boutique we always make sure it delivers a unique shopping experience.” Johnny Was clothing is synonymous with apparel that celebrates a bohemian elegance and artisan detailing with their unrivaled embroideries, prints and trims. For fall, Trauber said, “the Johnny Was collection highlights print silk dresses, embroidered faux-fur coats, crochet sweaters, and our timeless tunics – all in a wide variety of prints and intricate embroideries. From our hand-assembled kimono jackets to our popular swim collection and everything in between, our boutiques are about inviting guests into the Johnny Was universe.” The store, one of 50 independent Johnny Was boutiques, will also feature their recently added collection of Italian washed leather bags crafted in Florence and their popular fragrance, Talia, available in eau de parfum, oil and candle.
