Betsy Johnson Fall 2008-Ready to Wear-Wow 80s!

10 comments:
 
A few months ago I visited the Betsy Johnson store in Vancouver. I saw a sign posted at the front desk asking people who still had dresses from the 80s to donate them. I figured they must be doing something with them, maybe a display? I discovered that she was using these vintage pieces as an inspiration for her Fall 2008 Ready to Wear collection. I am a big fan of Betsy Johnson. I like that she stays true to her style and always creates unique pieces. Her stores are also magnificent, you feel as if you are in her own personal closet. The show was set in a dark night club. Here are some highlights from the collection. (Images via style.com)








Part of Betsy's inspiration for her clothes and stores has been her background in dance and theater. Prior to starting her own Betsy Johnson Label in 1978, she designed for Paraphernalia and Alley Cat. She has won the The Coty and Lifetime achievement awards and been inducted into the Fashion Walk of Fame. (BetsyJohnson)

I love Betsey too, but not even she could pry my vintage 80s Betsey dresses from my hands!
