Betsey Johnson has never been one to follow trends and her spring 2012 collection was no exception. While many designers are leaning towards textured tops and mid-length skirts, Betsey chose sheers and loosely flowing bottoms, which were a pleasant divergence from her typical bubble and tulle skirts.
The sheer was, assumedly, to showcase her newly-blossoming lingerie line, to which she featured in her final walk , having the panty-clad models carrying A and T balloons (which stand for A Tisket, the lingerie line).
Betsey complimented her ultra-feminine style with ultra-high platform stiletto heels (giving a few of the models a run for their money). The collection was filled with Betsey’s go-to patterns like floral, cheetah print, and skulls, printed onto full-length skirts, wide leg pants and harem-style rompers. And, of course, Betsey’s fabulous line was not the sole entertainment of the night. Surprising audience members, Betsey danced down the runway, skipping up and down as the models took their final walk. At the end of the night, Betsey Johnson entertained.
