Ulla Johnson. Dream designer, mother of 3. (So basically our hero)
It's rare we get this crazed writing a story for TWH. But after you read this one you may need to take a cold shower or melt your ice block of credit cards hidden in your freezer.
We have been in love with all of the stunning pieces by Ulla Johnson for over year or so now but not until recently did we become absolutely insanely obsessed. Like a slow and steady fever of love turning into burning desires. It was a love at first sight kind of thing. We just knew we had to have everything we could get our hands on.
Her designs are effortless, timeless, chic and totally wearable season after season. Each piece is just that, a piece. When you wear it you feel it. You know you are wearing something that you will have forever. They are not trendy or "fashion forward" they are just "Ulla".
And did we mention she's a mother of 3...yep 3!?!?!.... Soren, Asher, Agnes are her pride and joy. Her days begin and end with snuggles and kisses. Her nights are filled with movies and popcorn and cuddles.
You may be asking...how does she do it all. A loving mom to 3 little kids, a flourishing fashion line, a wife and a woman? Her answer?....
Luckily for all of us, as a mom of 3, she is always wishing she had a certain something that doesn't exist, something she needs right now. So out of that need she is branching out to a lifestyle brand. Just think a closet full of Ulla and a house to match...heaven on earth.
Need more inspiration? She started her line in 2000 with 5 pieces and $5000. Her advice? "Be Unafraid"
Ulla is a woman in touch. In touch with herself, her children, her audience (which is actually not who she designs for, she designs for herself...so maybe that means she's our spirit animal), and in touch with what it takes to be a loving, caring mom working outside of the home. Who are we if we are not ourselves first? And her designs reflect that-
