Having practiced purchasing "No New Clothes" for over five years, Johanna recognized a gap in the fashion marketplace: there needed to be a more circular way to access the highest fashions that we tend to photograph and wear only once for special events. Enter OpenClosit. Like a fully-managed Airbnb for your wardrobe, Johanna and team connect high fashion owners with fashion renters to create a highly curated and mutually beneficial sharing economy.
Originally hailing from Canada, Johanna moved to Bali in 2017 to develop the technology that fuels OpenClosit's multicloset online store. Having identified Los Angeles as the ideal launch market for the business, Johanna and her Bali dog moved to Malibu in 2020 to grow the inventory on the platform.
"My 'aha! moment' came after I saw the numbers, it was clear that there was something exciting here. OpenClosit was created to fill the need for that knockout one-time-wear outfit for women but also as a solution for people whose budget does not extend to high fashion but would love to access luxury garments. More importantly, it extends the life cycle of that garment that otherwise the owner could would wear once. As a side result, I hope that OpenClosit will minimize consumers reliance on fast fashion brands that have little to no concern for the environment and or the people behind the scenes and in the factories."
Johanna spends most days at OpenClosit's storefront in Santa Monica where you can find her styling customers for their special events and ogling over new inventory coming in.
