Ladies I Love Series #3 Betsey Johnson!!!!!
Betsey Johnson was born August 10, 1942 in Wethersfield, Connecticut. She started as an intern after high school for the magazine MADEMOISELLE and then won the Guest Editor contest which launched her Fashion Career. Within a year she became the in-house designer for the Manhattan Boutique "Paraphernalia". She was involved in Andy Warhol's underground scene also with The Velvet Underground, Edie Sedgwick and Lou Reed.
In 1969, she opened a boutique called "Betsey Bunki Nini" on N.Y.'s Upper East Side. In the 70's she took over "Alley Cat" a rock'n'roll Label and did very well. So, She finally started her OWN Fashion Line in 1978 and has been one of the most "over the top", funky and adorable fashion line! She is BY far my Favorite Designer. ( I own many purses and jewelry!!! )
Many Faces throughout the Years!
