girls do not dress for boys. they dress for themselves.
Fashion is a beautiful expression of the way we see ourselves. While there are many designers I admire and adore, there is none more than Betsey Johnson. I love the bold, fun, edgy, retro elements found in everything she creates. Every Betsey Johnson piece has personality.
With the sad news that the famed fashion designer has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, and that many Betsey Johnson stores will be closed, I needed to cheer myself up by soaking up her design aesthetic.
Dramatic colours, shapes, and prints are only a small part of what makes her designs so dynamic. There is a youthful energy to her collections, full of wild, untamed enthusiasm. It is easy to fall in love with Betsey!
Are you a fan of Betsey?
