Good bye Betsey Johnson

Betsey Johnson is closing her doors. She unfortunately filed for bankruptcy recently. Everything on her website is 40-65% off, so you better snag it up before it’s all gone.

Betsey Johnson has been in the fashion business since the 60’s. Since entered the industry after winning the Guest Editor Contest for Mademoiselle magazine. And within a year she was working as a designer at a boutique and soon entered into the Andy Warhol scene and opened up her own boutique called  Betsey Bunki Nini. Above is a pattern from the 70’s when she was in creative control of the Alley Cat company. It was in 1978 that she partnered up with Chantal Bacon to start up the Betsey Johnson label that we all very familiar with today.

It’s sad to see such a great designer and company close it’s doors after over 30 years. All of my favorite jewelry pieces, perfume,  and my new favorite pair of shoes are all from Betsey Johnson.
