Joi Johnston

Wedding Dress Designer, Jill of All Trades, World Traveler

Joi Mahoney Johnston might be your favorite person on the planet once you meet her. She’s part volunteer coordinator, part education and outreach assistant and sometimes you’ll run into her coordinating the AcA front desk. Joi works with our volunteers and helps to keep our growing education and outreach department moving, all while running her wedding dress design company, Wild Azalea. Joi graduated from UL in fashion design and merchandising and before settling down in Lafayette to redesign and reconstruct vintage wedding dresses, she worked for a fashion designer in New Orleans. When she isn’t being a boss entrepreneur and AcA staff member, she loves sewing and traveling as much as she can with her new husband, Aaron.
