Cookie Johnson Jeans, officially known as CJ, debuted in the Spring of 2009. CJ by Cookie Johnson is a sophisticated, premium denim jean brand. They are featuring innovative styles that celebrate femininity. These wildly popular jeans are filling a void in the denim marketplace. Cookie Johns on Jeans exhibited initial success in Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and over 400 specialty boutiques across the country including Treasure Trove in Galveston, Texas. CJ by Cookie Johnson rapidly caught the attention of celebrities, including Oprah Winfrey. Oprah declared the brand “The Best Jeans Ever!” and featured the line on The Oprah Show’s coveted “The Best” episode.

The CJ by Cookie Johnson collection consists of tried and true styles. These styles include; the Faith (straight leg), Grace (boot cut), Peace (skinny), Joy (legging), Glory (slim boyfriend) and Wisdom (ankle skinny). They also feature on-trend colors, washes, textures, treatments and prints. Cookie Johnson is keeping the collection as playful and unique as the women who wear them. Johnson delivers fit, function and style all while incorporating a variety of tonal and fabric variations. CJ by Cookie Johnson offers smart, versatile styles to women sizes 24-38 (2-18), with prices ranging from $128-$188.
Looking to expand the line in 2013, Johnson partnered with friend Mitchell Quaranta of Swatfame, Inc. For over 30 years, Swatfame has developed some of the most well-known brands, including Kut from the Kloth™ , See Thru Soul® and Speechless®. Swatfame also collaborated with LEI Jeans in the mid 1990’s and was one of the original founders of Citizens of Humanity. Johnson believes “The confidence that great-fitting jeans gives women is the most rewarding thing about creating CJ.” By combining clean, innovative styles with flattering fits, CJ denim fashionably carries women throughout their entire day. From the morning carpool, to a busy day at the office, to a night out on the town, Cookie Johnson Jeans deliver. With Swatfame’s experience and Johnson’s passion and instinct for fashion, the CJ collection is carefully crafted to deliver just as much on fit and comfort as it does on style.
