I am so ashamed how late this post has been put up, shame on me indeed! But yes back on September 12th, Betsey Johnson rocked New York Fashion week with her Spring/Summer 2012 collection. With singer Nicki Minaj sitting front row, decked head to toe in Lolita esque pastels, with a fierce aqua blue curly do, and edible looking sweet jewellery, this was definitely the most exciting and extravagant show at New York Fashion week!

Apparently “boobs up, butt out!” was the advice designer Betsey Johnston gave her models before they sashayed down the runway sporting mini-bustiers, bright bubble skirts, jewelled bralets, complimented by big, bold necklaces, lightning-bolt earrings (which incidentally, were made by an Etsy seller, isn’t that amazing?!), and hot bright pink lips. The collection illustrated that time and time again Betsey makes her own rules in the fashion world, and whilst many other designers who showcased what we’ll be wearing next season displayed various Spring esque flowy tops and mid-length skirts and dresses, Betsey went with a Burlesque lingerie theme which was assumedly to showcase her new look lingerie line, which was highlighted throughout and at the end, with panty-clad models carrying huge red and silver foil A and T balloons, which stand for ‘A Tisket’, the name of the lingerie line.

For me the collection was fun and flirty and thus very Betsey, but I did miss the huge bubble and tulle net dresses that has become for me the embodiment of Betsey’s style. Nonetheless, if you take this collection for what it is, to highlight and promote her new lingerie line, then it was again another triumph. I adored the corseted flirty mini length dresses, and I love how even the shoes, with their corset detail, take on a lingerie feel. There weren’t as many ‘Ooooh I need it things’ as I have previous spring/summer Betsey collections, but it was a very cute collection for the next season! I’ve included some of my favourites above, and you can watch the whole show above, courtesy of Youtube, oh and yes, the obligatory Betsey cartwheel and splits is at the end of part 2. I’ve told you this lady is 69, right?! Yes!
