Johnson studied at the Pratt Institute and graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Syracuse University. After interning at Mademoiselle magazine, she was mentored by Edie Locke.

She opened a retail store in the SoHo area of New York City and designed the dress that Lisa Loeb wore in the music video for her 1994 hit “Stay (I Missed You).”

In 2008, she was a contributor to Carrie Borzillo-Vrenna's book Cherry Bomb. The National Arts Club awarded Johnson the 2009 Medal of Honor for Lifetime Achievement in Fashion.
