Brooke Johansen got her start in the corporate world while working as a junior shop director at Kit and Ace – she was one of the first 50 employees. While working there, Johansen met her trusted business partner, Zoe Tisshaw. Together, with Jenny Wright-Harper, they founded Park & Fifth, a Vancouver-based company focused on bridesmaid dresses. In 2019, Park & Fifth has grown to be a high-end retailer with more than $1 million in revenue and stores in three provinces across Canada. Prior to her role as co-owner of Park & Fifth, Johansen worked at several leading retail companies, including The Vancouver Urban Winery, Aritzia, and The Velvet Room Boutique.
