Never one to dull a crowd, Betsey Johnson presented her Fall 2012 collection with a bang. She took the audiences through two major eras in fashion-the 60s and 70s all in the typical vivacious Betsey Johnson style. The presentation featured tunes from the Beatles and Areatha Franklin played as models stomped down the runway. Opening the show with a mod inspired black and white checker skinny pant coupled with a four-button diagonal closure blazer toped with a black cap—very 70s. And, knee high silver boots under striped hosiery. Betsey was definitely feeling the psychedelic vibe.
Johnson, went from mod to boho with models strutting down the runway in pink faux fur collars over floral printed blouses and orange wool jackets with brimming pink faux shearling collar. Of course, Betsey featured playful eveningwear sure to be seen on the prom dance floors next year like the gold sequins dress with full billowing tulle skirt. — Ayanna Barton
