This Tik Tok Creator Inherited The Designer Wardrobe Of Her Dreams From Her Grandmother
When a glamorous celebrity has her first daughter, we often romanticize the day the child will be old enough to fit her mother’s clothing and recreate memorable fashion moments. Like the day Blue Ivy will be able to explore Beyone’s extensive collection of rare handbags and heels, or the moment Kulture steps out in a familiar ensemble from an iconic Cardi B fashion moment. For Olivia Joan, the day has come and every time she does a clothing haul of her inherited wardrobe on Tik Tok, she goes viral.
Aside from being an emerging Tik Tok influencer, Joan also happens to be the granddaughter of the late Joan Johnson. Johnson was the co-founder, along with her husband, of Johnson Products Company – the company that was responsible for creating the iconic Afro Sheen and Ultra Sheen products.
Joan described her grandmother’s style as well put together. “She [her grandmother] always thought, especially as a Black woman, that how you dress is how people portray you, so she always wanted to be well put together, Joan tells ESSENCE. “She always had a good button down, trousers and loafers.” When further reflecting on her grandmother’s style, Joan recalled her wearing an extravagant Tom Ford dress with feathers atop while she was in a wheelchair. That memory alone paints a picture of how glamorous she was and the type of clothes you would expect to find in her closet.
