Our Team

Chloe Johnston
Founder

A well-heeled traveler from a young age, Johnston was first introduced to Paris—the city in which Chloe Johnston Experiences first launched—by her mother when she was just 12 years old. Paris, and its incredible food and fashions, were love at first sight. During subsequent trips with her mother, an avid art, history, wine and vintage fashion aficionado, Johnston developed a penchant for European clothing along with a knack for unearthing hidden boutiques and artisans.

It was immediately evident to her mother that Johnston’s appreciation for, and insider knowledge about, Paris’ history and culture was something to be nurtured. This shared interest became the foundation upon which the Chloe Johnston brand became to quietly take shape. Upon graduating from the Agnes Irwin School in Rosemont, PA, Johnston went on to pursue a BA in Sociology from the University of Virginia and an MBA in Fashion Entrepreneurship from LIM College in New York City. The latter, combined with additional visits to Paris and other European cities, became the inspiration for her namesake brand.

Today, Chloe Johnston Experiences offers tailored arts and culture, culinary, fashion, interior design and a number of bespoke itineraries in NYC, Paris, London, Switzerland, California and more soon to come. A leader among her peers, Johnston is slowly and steadily reshaping the way high-end consumers think about travel. Additionally, she is renown throughout Philadelphia, the company’s headquarters, for her support of female-run businesses and creating opportunities for numerous young women in the fashion and travel industry. A dedicated philanthropist, Johnston is an active chair and volunteer at Devereux Pennsylvania and Wings for Success.

MARY ANNE, Co-Founder and Mentor

MARY ANNE
Co-Founder and Mentor

Chloe Johnston’s mother, Mary Anne, co-founded the company with Chloe and serves as a mentor to her daughter. Mary Anne’s European heritage sparked her interest in fashion, travel, and foreign cultures. After visiting Paris with Chloe and the rest of their family many years ago, her love for the city was ignited and only grew after purchasing an apartment in the heart of the 7th arrondissement. Fluent in French culture, the Philadelphia-based entrepreneur works closely with Chloe to share her passion with clients.

VERUSCHKA
Designer

While working with Dr. Torosian to improve our own health, wellness, and inner beauty, the Chloe Johnston team began to explore the idea of creating an all-natural skin care line. After years of study and research, Dr. Torosian worked closely with the finest German laboratory to create cutting-edge skin care products. With the help of Dr. Torosian’s expertise in anti-aging and regenerative medicine, we created our exclusive Chloe Elyce skin care line to help women protect and restore their skin from the harshest traveling conditions.

SYMONE

Born abroad and traveling ever since, Symone was accustomed to delving head first into new cultures and cities prior to settling in New York this past year.

While earning her B.A. from Northeastern University, Symone immersed herself in the self-study of both International Business and Fashion Analysis, through various internships and study abroad opportunities. Fluent in the business of all things unique and classic, you can find Symone either geeking out over a recent vintage find or absolutely glowing while in a new restaurant, glass in hand.

HABSA
Designer

After leaving her home in the northern part of Senegal to study economics in France, Habsa modeled on the runway, and then became captivated by Parisian style and studied with a German costume designer for eight years. “My favorite part of jewelry making is when I find a material that I like – metal, leather or stone – and then start to think of what I can do with it,” said the designer. “It’s the first moment when a necklace, or bracelet is born.” Since venturing into her shop years ago, we’ve earned countless compliments from Habsa’s unique pieces.

CATHERINE
Designer

After working for luxury brands such as Hermès, Lancel, and Delvaux, industry veteran Catherine decided to launch her own retail location, which features beautifully handcrafted bags. Prior to the founding of Chloe Johnston, our team frequently visited Catherine’s Parisian shop. After making many of our own purchases, family and friends began asking us where they could buy these bags without having to travel to France. This curiosity and desire for Catherine’s unique bags was the catalyst that led to our strong relationship with her.

Philanthropy

Amidst all our conversation about luxury travel and elite lifestyle experiences, there is one talking point we never ignore and that is gratitude. Gratitude for all of the opportunities that have presented and that we have been in a position to receive. As you’d imagine, this includes the ability to travel and experience all the world has to offer. Underneath all of us lies deep appreciation for our good fortune and for having the ability to bring joy and lasting memories into our clients’ lives. It is a privilege to share our experiences with you.

Equally important, is the way in which we pay this good fortune forward to others who may not yet have these opportunities.

There are many ways to be philanthropic: giving of your time, sharing resources and sometimes just spreading the word. We believe in all of these and are passionate about our philanthropic partners:
