About Us

The Professional Hoodrat was founded in November of 2020 by DMV Native, Kimberly Johnson. Johnson started The Professional Hoodrat with a collection of streetwear to celebrate the election of our nation’s first Black Vice President. From there, she went on to create streetwear with a message geared specifically to people thriving in Corporate America that still love Trap Music. With messages ranging from “Minding the Business that Pays Me” to “Building Generational Wealth,” the Professional Hoodrat prides itself with creating a brand that speaks to the masses. There’s literally something for everyone. In 2021, The Professional Hoodrat, received the prestigious honor of the Buy From a Black Woman Clothing Line of the Year. They have been featured in subscription boxes as well as recognized on several podcasts including, “Black at Work”, “His Mama, Her Son,” and “For a Black Girl.” The Professional Hoodrat is currently available for purchase online as well as at two retailers that celebrate Black Owned Businesses, Curate Noir and The Sistah Shop. In addition to consistently growing their own brand, The Professional Hoodrat also supports other businesses by creating custom apparel for their brands. The Professional Hoodrat is proud of their consistent 5 star reviews and intends to takeover the world, one hoodie and t-shirt at a time.
