St. John Reveals Shonda Rhimes in #OwnYourPower for Spring 2023 Campaign

In preparation for International Women’s Month, the American luxury house, St. John, has launched the #OwnYourPower campaign featuring Shonda Rhimes, the award-winning television creator, producer, author, and CEO of Shondaland. The #OwnYourPower campaign was established to celebrate a unique sisterhood of incredible women doing extraordinary things. The partnership coincides with St. John’s Spring 2023 Collection, a new season of great American design from the iconic knitwear fashion house.

After six decades of dressing the world’s most esteemed women, the St. John brand has grown through evolving trends, social moments, and changes in creative direction. St. John’s elegant, timeless, easy-to-wear pieces with unsurpassed quality and craftsmanship enable women to feel their best every day. This focus on empowerment resonates deeply with Rhimes, who embodies this philosophy as she gracefully navigates personal and professional demands in style. 

Rhimes was the first woman to create three television dramas that hit the 100-episode milestone and has produced award-winning shows such as Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder, Bridgerton, and Inventing Anna. Other accolades include a New York Times bestseller, Year of Yes, a Peabody award, and an induction into the Television Academy Hall of Fame. As a CEO, mother, and storyteller, she is a powerful force in a competitive, male-dominated, industry, brilliantly reflecting the world through powerful narratives and captivating characters. 

The CEO has gravitated to the chic, comfortable designs so she can effortlessly dress for her busiest days, feeling focused and confident. A longtime fan of St. John, Rhimes makes each look her own, adding her unique perspective to each outfit. After Rhimes selected a St. John sweater for her cover of TIME Magazine, conversations began about women’s empowerment and the collaboration was organically born.
