Australian Designer Johnny Schembri founded his contemporary womenswear label By Johnny in 2009. The Label is inspired by design concepts from past and present, reworking traditional silhouettes and creating collections for the individual who appreciates effortless style with a unique and modern edge.
Having already acquired an impressive following each season, By Johnny evolves and blends bold aesthetics, delicate body contouring and digital printing. This mix of elements ensures the By Johnny collections have a vital intensity; bold and brave. Having produced twelve successful seasons, the By Johnny brand has gained fast momentum, receiving weekly celebrity requests and significant editorial support.
In August 2014, leading Australian department store MYER announced By Johnny as part of their exclusive fashion stable.
Johnny’s design talents have been recognised in 2010 as the PERONI Harper’s BAZAAR Young Designer of the Year Award, top ten finalist of the QANTAS Spirit of the Youth Award 2012 & 2013. He was a top three finalist of the 2014 BT Emerging Designer Award and has been nominated for the Australian Emerging Designer Laureate Award for both 2014 and 2015. In 2015 Johnny Schembri was awarded the 2015 DHL Fashion Export Scholarship.
