Meet the Woman behind the Men NBA Playoff Edition: Stylist Rachel Johnson

Fab readers while checking out Fashion Bomb Daily we ran across a snippet of an article on stylist Rachel Johnson. Rachel Johnson is stylist to several nba players including Amare Stoudemire, Lebron James and Chris Bosh. While all of these players bring something different to the game of basketball the one thing they all have in common is that they all have great style courtesy of Rachel Johnson. Check out a snippet of the interview below and click here for the full story.
"Ms. Johnson grew up in Englewood, N.J., where she fell in love with fashion at a very young age. She was voted the best dressed in high school. “My favorite outfit was a green suede Ralph Lauren Purple Label skirt with a cashmere twin set,” she said. “Teachers would stand outside classes waiting to see what I’d wear.” While attending Florida A&M University, Ms. Johnson met Groovey Lew, a hip-hop stylist who showed her the possibility of a career built on dressing celebrities. “That was my a-ha moment,” she said. After college, she wrangled a job at Essence magazine through a friend on the staff. There, she met two other well-connected stylists, June Ambrose and Sybil Pennix, whose clients included Sean Combs, Missy Elliott and the Notorious B.I.G. She went to work for them, learning the ropes".

Check out  few pics of her clients below (because we are a sucker for a well dressed man)
