LOS ANGELES, Jan 4, 2010 / FW/ — Curvy women, rejoice! Innovative online retailer, MyShape®, premieres the new CJ by Cookie Johnson line of premium denim jeans, available today along with early spring styles.
CJ by Cookie Johnson – Oprah’s favorite brand of jeans – was launched by Cookie Johnson, wife of NBA superstar Magic Johnson, and partner Michael Glasser, legendary founder of 7 for All Mankind, Citizens of Humanity, and Rich & Skinny. Also on board is top denim designer, Joie Rucker, formerly of Guess, Levi’s and Rich & Skinny.
CJ by Cookie Johnson offers high-end jeans in an impressive size range for curvy women. Despite being fit and toned, Johnson says, “CJ by Cookie Johnson was born out of my frustration. I couldn’t find a premium denim jean that really fit my shape. I tried them all, but always left the dressing room feeling like they weren’t ‘me.’ It was my goal to create something versatile and flattering for real bodies.”
It’s no wonder that along with Oprah, celebrity fans include Tyra Banks, Rachael Ray, and Jillian Barberie.
MyShape – a free service that matches a woman’s measurements, body shape, and fit and style preferences with clothing that suits her – is a concept that clearly resonated with Johnson. “I know MyShape has a great reputation for helping its customers find the right fit, so it seemed like a natural partnership.”
Once a woman sets up her Personal Shop™ at MyShape, it’s instantly filled with only the clothes that fit and flatter™ her; clothes gleaned from hundreds of name-brand designers like CJ by Cookie Johnson.
And with jeans anchoring most women’s wardrobes, Johnson happily reports that when it comes to today’s denim styles “anything goes—from wide leg to straight leg, boyfriend looks to denim leggings. The key is how you style it.” But she adds, “It’s important to recognize that just because a certain silhouette or style is a hot trend, that doesn’t mean it’s right for your specific body type.”
What do women love most about CJ Jeans? “The fact that they can feel sexy wearing jeans again. They don’t have to settle for ‘mom jeans,’” Johnson says.
