New York Fashion Week Gallery: Betsey Johnson Fall 2009
Betsey Johnson was one of many designers who chose to cancel their runway show this season, but that didn't stop her being as fun and funky as usual, albeit with a smaller presentation instead of the usual kitsch-fest of a catwalk show. Editors and buyers were invited to a retro kitchen where models wore everything from full-skirted skull print dresses with wide elastic belts to pretty pink and blue ice-cream striped knits. Betsey knows where her bread is buttered, and no doubt her new crop of young fans will love the collection, which managed to blend Paris Hilton cute with Avril Lavigne emo.
Yep, I just said 'Avril Lavigne emo'...
