Denise Johnston entered the fashion world as a couture buyer at the young age of twenty-three and has continued to broaden her expansive expertise in the industry ever since. Moving forward in her fashion journey, Denise developed into a strong leader in the fashion industry. By overseeing and running a multitude of companies Denise learned the ins and outs of the apparel business. From her position as president of Liz Claiborne and Gap Adult North America, Denise began to take on more entrepreneurial roles at companies such as Jack Rogers and Rachel Roy. Time spent here flourished her desire to continue her fashion journey as an entrepreneur and business owner. In this process À-TOUT-ÂGE was born.
When she isn’t working to create brand recognition and incentivize product development, Denise enjoys traveling the globe and spending time with friends and family. The tastemaker has journeyed from the Pacific to the Atlantic, spending time throughout Europe and Asia. Denise has also spent numerous years residing in California, Michigan, Minnesota, Texas, New York and most recently Florida. This has helped her understand customers’ needs from all corners of the United States. During a warm summer day one can find Denise soaking up the sun and sand in Marco Island, or walking the beach in Southampton. It was in Naples that Denise and her best friend Barbara Giangrossi came up with the idea of À-TOUT-ÂGE. The business launch only strengthened the dynamic duo’s friendship, and the two have worked side by side ever since.
Denise Johnston’s style shows a slant on resort living and at times highlights city chic sophistication. Taking pride in timeless beauty, Denise connects with women working to achieve a graceful youth as they age. Due to her progressive knowledge of fashion trends spanning from the California “free spirit”, the Gulf of Mexico vacation trends, and the electric New Yorker, Denise has created clothing for every type of woman. Her collections feature high quality apparel that offer flattering silhouettes with European flare. Her friends have been extremely influential in her life, expressing their wish for clothing that will suit their changing bodies while still exuding style and grace. À-TOUT-ÂGE incorporates Denise’s passion for natural, flattering products that are unique and sensual in appearance. As a result a woman can feel as though ten years has been shaved from her age. Denise lives by the moto that comfort does not need to come at the cost of style, which has led to the creation of tasteful pieces for a multi-dimensional lifestyle.
