Betsey Johnson takes us down Abbey Road last night in her latest Fall runway show.
The free-spirited designer presented to the world her Fall collection called Betseymania, which paid homage to all things British, including the greatest rock band the English ever made: The Beatles.
In this collection, Betsey creates 60’s mod and multi-generational fashions with some intriguing names such as Buckingham Palace, Ringo Star, and Strawberry Fields. It was all about petticoat dresses, peacoats, sequins, colors, mashup tracks and a bunch of fun on the runway. The hip and trendy Steve Madden shoe collection complimented every piece that walked out into the spotlight. Betsey’s daughter, Lulu closed out the show in a satin hot pink evening gown called to Sir With Love.
And what would be a Betsey show without the famous signature cartwheel and a band of models marching to “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Band.” The show was a hoot and I was blessed to have witnessed the event for this was too impossible to get into! Huge thanks to Diata Wallace of Society HAE, stylist Robin A. Lacey and the wonderful people in the world of Betsey Johnson!
