Happy Birthday, Betsey Johnson



    Happy Birthday, Betsey Johnson

    In classic Betsey Johnson style, the prissy punk princess rang in 67 with a pink tutu, a crown and a bang.  The busy designer kept up respectable energy, running around to her Manhattan stores to celebrate her birthday with her customers over cupcakes and lemonade. 

    Continuing the trend of designers working hard for the money on their stores' floors, Johnson's effervescent presence was a treat, along with the showcase of archived fashion shows dating back to her very first, in 1978, on betseyjohnson.com.  The inspiring time capsule of Betsey Johnson fun coincides with the designer's line for Opening Ceremony, which also hearkens back to her roots.

    Seriously, though, we don't think she looks a day over 13. Happy birthday!
