Born and raised in Los Angeles, Joanna August moved to New York in 1999 to earn her bachelors degree from Columbia University. After 5 years in NYC, Joanna returned to L.A. to pursue a career as a film executive working first for the renowned Creative Artist Agency and later Revolution Studios and Universal Studios. But after 6 years and several film credits, Joanna could no longer deny that her true passion lay else where: in fashion. She left her job in 2008 and began taking classes at the Otis College of Art and Design and developing her dress collection on the side. Combining her laid back West Coast style with the edge and sophistication she picked up during her time on the East Coast, Joanna began to design relaxed yet cosmopolitan dresses that have received acclaim from clients, celebrities, wedding industry professionals and media alike. Living in Los Angeles with her husband, the designer now devotes all of her time to her Joanna August dress line.
