American designer and renowned fashion icon Betsey Johnson returned to New York Fashion Week on Wednesday, September 11th. This season, Betsey was determined to get the fashion set through the industry’s busiest time of the year with a surefire remedy: One A Day Betsey.
Beginning with pill bottle invites and doctor’s chart programs, Betsey set out to share her prescription for dressing. Evoking a rotational wardrobe any girl can relate to, Betsey sent her girls strutting down the catwalk in seven signature styles like cotton jumpsuits and tulle gowns in four different prints. For the demure girl next door, there was liberty florals. For the night owl, dazzling white sequins. For the sex vixen, fierce leopard. And for the downtown Bowery girl after Betsey’s own heart: punk. Everything was head-to-toe print, even the accessories, from bucket bags and satchels to sky-high stilettos and wedge sneakers to nameplate Betsey belts and jewelry.
With an outfit for every day of the week and a print for every personality, there’s still one thing left: what’s underneath. Models clad in day of the week underwear reminiscent of younger years closed out the show, shaking it down the runway with American flags to Sinatra’s ‘New York, New York’. But at a Betsey show, the models never truly close down the house; Betsey and her granddaughters cartwheeled down the runway for a final finale.
Even notables turned out to get their daily dose of Betsey, including: ADRIENNE BALLON, ANDREW BEVAN, BECKA DIAMOND, DANI STAHL, EMMA SNOWDEN JONES, FERN MALLIS, IGGY AZALEA (wearing Betsey Johnson bag), JOSH FLAGG, JULIE HENDERSON, LENAY DUNN, LISALLA MONTENEGRO, LULU JOHNSON, MARYLOU LUTHER, MELANIE FIONA, MISS JAY ALEXANDER, MISS UNIVERSE OLIVIA CULPO, MISS USA ERIN BRADY, NATALIA KILLS (wearing Betsey Johnson bag), NINA AGDAL, PARIS HILTON (wearing Betsey Johnson dress),PHILLIP BLOCH, RESK QUE, ROBERT VERDI, and SONJA MORGAN.
