Shelly Johnson

Shelly Johnson is a Metro-Detroit Freelance Journalist that is impassioned with curiosity to learn. Her personal profile stories of fashion designers and artists are her favorites, because they inspire her to stay current and creative in her own wardrobe. As a busy mother of three, college-bound boys, Shelly is young at heart, loves people and running and gets inspiration from nature, travel and timeless objects of art. She has written magazine and newspaper columns on fashion, as well as interviewed local and national fashion designers to understand many creative aspects of the craft. She considers fashion to be an adventure and is intrigued by the hunt for that perfect statement piece or elegant and timeless garment or jewel that tells a story of it’s own. She admires the endless freedom of expression in fashion as a wonderful affirmation of individuality and culture. Although Shelly loves simplicity, the sparkle of all things Parisian speak to her soul. Her favorite colors are red and orange.
