Over 150 attendees marveled at six of the young designer’s creations. She was invited to participate in the fashion show by Margaret McKoin, CEO of The Time Group and organizer of the event and the show emcee, former NFL player, Super Bowl XLVI Champion, Isaiah Stanback. Isaiah met Miss Johnson while judging an Incubator competition for the Coppell School District where she presented her business concept. Her concept was to create a company where women could go online and create their own unique dress that Miss Johnson and her team would custom the dress for that woman’s individual body type. Miss Johnson received a $1,000 gift certificate for services from The Time Group to assist her in launching her brand. 29 models participated in the fashion show from ages 5-60.
