HIBorn and raised in Compton of Salvadorian decent, Johana Hernandez has accomplished in her young life what many fashionistas only dream of; to have their own clothing line and designing for globally recognized brands such as Seven7 Jeans, Isaac Mizrahi and having her own collection in stores such as Macy’s, Bloomingdales and Target to name a few.
But this success does not come cheap; there was sweat, long work-hours and probably tears working alongside her parents in order to achieve her dream.
She appeared on NBC’s reality competition series, Fashion Star where she shared her unique style and flair and had America wondering who this corky, creative and unique Latina was. Her gowns have been worn by X-Factor judge Paulina Rubio, Gloria Trevi among other celebrities but yet when you talk to her, it’s like catching up with an old friend.
Johana is by far the most humble and sweetest person I’ve met. As you talk to her one can’t help to be amazed at her love for God and her passion for life, she lightens any room she walks in. Willing to share a smile and always making sure people feel comfortable.
Her love for others led her to create her own collection, GLAUDI by Johana Hernandez, where through fashion events and sales from her clothing line she raises funds for kids suffering from poverty in Latin America. She is also founder and Vice President of Latinos Con Corazon, a fundraising event that helps nonprofits for children and elders in Latina American countries with fashion, music, and art events.
It’s no wonder that her madrina, the popular and good-doer herself, Myrka Dellanos, nominated Johana for People en Espanol’s “Las 25 Mujeres Mas Poderosas” (The 25 Most Powerful Women) for her philanthropic work helping needy children in El Salvador and Mexico. In fact, Johana along with her friends and family are rallying everyone to vote for her because she will be DONATING the cash prize to an impoverished school in El Salvador.
