Goodbye Betsey Johnson

Horribly sad news to report on. The Betsey Johnson brand has filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy yesterday and will be closing most of its' stores. Apparently the layoffs of senior staff started over a month ago and this week, the entire design team was laid-off, but in good Betsey Johnson fashion with cupcakes and champaign. It's so sad to see this brand that really cultivated eccentric dressing for decades go. Some of my very first designer pieces were all Betsey Johnson, including the shirt worn by Johnson in the above photo. Hopefully this won't be the end of the amazing designer, but as of now, the brand has definitely been put on pause.

  1. OMG! that's terrible. To be completely honest though, when read the title I thought you were going to say she died! I was relieved that she wasn't, but there might as well be a funeral though since her brand is on hold... I really love Betsey's collections
