I don’t know what it is about Betsy Johnson. Maybe it’s that crazy look in her eye, or the fact that everything she does just seems so over-the-top for me; but anyone who knows me, knows I don’t care too much for her clothes. However, I did come across a few pieces as of late that were pretty decent. Don’t get me wrong, Johnson has done some things I like, but it’s either too juvenile or stripper-friendly.
Johnson’s been in the fashion industry for years, but it seems she made a huge BOOM, coming out of no where in the early 2000’s. Her designs are recognizable because of the hot-pink and leopard signatures that appear in garments; either small or large, from garment tags to shoe bottoms. Ms. Johnson also contributed to writer Carrie Borzillo’s “Cherry Bomb”- an essential guide to basically being an awesome chick. Could this Cherry Intarsia dress to the left have be an inspiration to Betsy?
Here are a few more that caught my eye. Seems a little prom/homecoming-ey, but you gotta love a strapless with a full skirt. ~C.M.
This is one of my faves. Simple, but screams “fun night at a party”
