Cookie Johnson
Business Woman & Wife of Basketball Great, Magic Johnson

Her own big idea, Cj by Cookie Johnson (premium denim for women with curves) was tested at Nordstrom and caused such a stir – selling out — that it has since expanded nationwide.

A businesswoman at heart, Johnson came out of ‘retirement’ — from being a full-time mom — to pursue this endeavor. “I wanted to let women know that no matter their shape, they can look and feel good in premium denim,” she says. The ‘women’ she refers to are women who have typically avoided jeans because their curves didn’t fit well into the trendy, high-end denim, cut for waifish figures.

“This was my story, too” adds Johnson, who works out daily, eats healthy, but isn’t a size two. “I couldn’t find jeans to fit my body. It frustrated me to try on every pair of jeans in the store and leave with nothing.” She realized that her testimony was that of many women. “I knew there was a hole in the market, it couldn’t just be me.

After her marriage to Earvin “Magic” Johnson she made the decision to become a full-time mom to their children. In addition to devoting time to her family, Johnson has always continued her work for the Magic Johnson Foundation where she empowers and educates women as a devoted philanthropist, children’s advocate and spokesperson for women’s health.
