The Brett Johnson Collection announced its founder and designer, media and entertainment scion Brett Johnson, will attend this year's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week (MBFW) prior to the launch of his menswear and shoe collection, which will debut in early 2013, at select retailers nationwide.

"I love fashion and particularly shoe design and I believe that if you think you can do something in life, just go for it and this is what I have set out to do," said Johnson. "We will launch the first selections from the collection early next season," he continued. "I want the collection to become one of the most high end sneakers and sought after brands in the world."

"I'm proud of my son and his passion for creating a successful business in shoes and apparel," said Robert L. Johnson, Founder and Chairman of The RLJ Companies. "I have watched with pride, his growth in self-confidence, integrity, and a strong work ethic," he continued. "As Brett charts his own business course, nothing will make me happier than to watch him succeed; and, as any father would, I will help out in any way that I can."

"I could not be more proud of Brett than I am at this very moment. His shoe and clothing designs have received outstanding reviews from professionals and designers from within the fashion industry," said Brett's mother Sheila C. Johnson, CEO of Salamander Hotels & Resorts and Chair of the Board of Governors of Parsons The New School for Design in New York. "He is gearing up for an incredible market debut for early next year," she concluded.

"We are incredibly excited about the Brett Johnson Collection and look forward to the debut of the footwear line from the collection early next season," said Morris Goldfarb, CEO and Chairman of G-III Apparel Group, Ltd., a leading manufacturer and distributor of select and private label brands. "His passion shines through in all of his designs, which are very creative and speak to who Brett is as a person and as an innovator."

"I am extremely proud of my friend Brett Johnson. His fresh, new line captures the essence of his fly sense of style," said Antonio "L.A." said Reid, Chairman and CEO of Epic Records.

Founded by Johnson, the namesake collection will offer a modern luxury brand for the world's most fashionable men and will appeal to well-dressed men of every generation. The Brett Johnson Collection will debut in 2013 with a line of men's shoes and apparel.
