Evolution of Betsey Johnson

Betsey Johnson is one of my all time favorite designers. Her clothes are so fun and fresh, they always put me in a good mood. She has been around forever and her dresses are all so unique and interesting, they could go with anything.

She started her career as a designer in the early 1970’s with her rock ‘n roll styled label, Alley Cat, which was a total success and created a trend for rockabilly style. Betsey then in the late 70’s started her own fashion line. Did I mention she has also styled one of my all time favorites Edie Sedgwick, who loved Betsey Johnson’s dresses.

Today we all know and love Betsey Johnson’s clothes, accessories, and shoes. She’s probably the coolest grandma out there and was awarded the Medal of Honor for Lifetime Achievement in Fashion Award on 2008. Now in 2011 she’s still rocking her crazy style and looking better then ever doing her signature cartwheel after every show.
