Betsey’s Still On Top

At 71 years old, Betsey Johnson is STILL the life of the party. No matter if she’s climbing to the top of reality tv stardom with her daughter Lulu or teaching her granddaughters how to execute the perfect cartwheel, she is always smiling.

Betsey started her own fashion empire in 1978 after working on the label Alley Cat (a popular 70’s rock n’ roll clothing line). Betsey is famous for her over-the-top aesthetic. Her clothing is the epitome of girlyness with just a touch of edge.

Almost more famous than her tulle skirts, matching accessories, and fun prints (ranging from leopard to cherries) is the unique way in which Betsey ends every fashion show. Unlike most designers who walk out and smile and maybe shake a few hands… Betsey always performs her signature cartwheel and lands into a split!

Despite filling for bankruptcy in 2012, Betsey has proven to still have plenty of fight in her. The designer who battled breast cancer, dressed the stars, and used her style and passion to become a household name, is still on top. We can’t wait to see what crazy theme and wild antics Betsey Johnson will bring to the upcoming New York Fashion Week!
