If you’re looking for a whimsical design with attitude yet still looking all pretty and girly, Betsey Johnson is the one you should go to! I can’t begin to tell you how much I love her!

It’s like everytime she launches new things, my eyes and my heart are going berserk (in a good way) lol.. So, it’s my honor to present the next favorite designer from VieCouture, Ms. Betsey Johnson!

Betsey was born in Wethersfield, Connecticut, August 10, 1942 and has been rocking the fashion industry since the 60’s. In 1999, Betsey received CFDA The Timeless Talent Award. She spent most of her childhood in dancing where she found the costumes to be the endless inspiration and the source for her creativity.

In the early 1970’s, she took control of a brand Alley Cat, a label that set the trend for rock ‘n roll clothing with a touch of bohemian and ethnic. Then later on 1972, Betsey received another award and this time it’s the Coty Award (she was the youngest designer).

And now, her creations can be seen in celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Salma Hayek, Courtney Love and many more.

As a breast cancer survivor, Betsey has also contributed a lot in battling the disease by making numerous actions such as raising events, and creating one of the kind items to be sold in auctions.

Here’s a quote from Ms. Johnson herself when asked about fashion:

“Making clothes involves what I like…color, pattern, shape and movement…I like the everyday process…the people, the pressure, the surprise of seeing the work come alive walking and dancing around on strangers. Like red lipstick on the mouth, my products wake up and brighten and bring the wearer to life…drawing attention to her beauty and specialness…her moods and movements…her dreams and fantasies.” – Betsey Johnson

Here are some of her latest Spring and Fall Collection 2007 that I totally LOVE!
