Betsey Johnson FW 2012 at the GalleryLA/Sunset Gower Studios

Mar 16, 2012

It wouldn’t be fashion weekend in Los Angeles without a bright, bold and eccentric opening from famed designer Betsey Johnson. Her collection began the weekend’s fashion festivities with pops of dramatic color, eye-catching leggings and flowy-short skirts. This year Betsey started the show with famed model Alexandria Everett of cycle 16 of Americas Next Top Model, rocking a long black maxi dress and leather biker jacket.Betsey Johnson showcased some of her recent pieces on the runway at Sunset Gower Studios for the GalleryLA/LAFW. Her playful use of ‘Barbie’ like themes continued in these outfits. Many were multi-layered with bright colors contrast by dark winter blacks. She continued to show us her creative leggings with small colorful designs attached to a darker base material, which easily brings attention to the model’s legs and gives the model a more youthful and lighthearted look. Betsey showcased knee high leggings and tights with jeweled patterns and stripes with wild colors.  The show featured hues of turquois, cranberry and black. Lastly, her tall heels with a bright colored palate completes the ensemble with toying and teasing finish.

We cannot wait to get our hands on the tights! Betsey’s shows never disappoint!
