Betsey Johnson is one zany designer. Her runway shows are more than than fun; they’re a party. The clothes are quite good, too, especially when you break apart each outfit into individual pieces. She likes to mix more than match. And you can’t help but smile when Betsey ends the show with a cartwheel. She’s in her late 60s, keep in mind. I’m not even sure I could do that now.
Anyway, Fashion Week Daily interviewed her assistant, Stephanie Wagenman. The interview is quite enlightening and offers a peek into Betsey’s daily life and more of her quirky appeal.
