Last September 13, 2010, I got the chance to see the Betsey Johnson Spring 2011 collection during the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City. Getting inside was crazy as there were so many people who attended her show. I must say it was definitely a success. I got third row seats but was too close to the runway entrance. So please pardon the photos as it was hard to take pictures from that angle. Well, let’s go ahead and check out the photos and Betsey Johnson’s Collection.
The show started off with a video of Betsey Johnson riding a bike around the fountain of Lincoln Center here in NYC. The other videos and photos of her family came in next. The first batch of pieces that came out reflected her fun personality. I’d say the pieces were eclectic, fun, wild and showed off her signature style. Studded belts were dominant along with chains and gloves. The models were wearing NYC taxi themed caps as well. Another style that’s very apparent in the collection are Navy-Inspired dresses while models wore Navy hats. I saw blue and white stripes, Navy-themed jackets and white gloves. Last but not the least there were a lot of lace and frilly fun dresses. There were printed dresses and suits that very much reflected the Spring season. Saw a lot of floral prints, and colorful and vibrant fabrics. The show ended with designer Betsey Johnson riding her bike on the runway then finally doing a front flip or cart wheel too. She put up a fantastic show. The models then all came out with checkered flags.
I had a blast. It was so much fun watching Betsey Johnson’s Spring 2011 Collection. There were a ton of celebrities present in the front row and of course I loved her giveaway too. The show was definitely a success. Until next Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week show! I still have three more shows to post so stay tuned!
