As one journalist recently quoted, "If Betsey Johnson didn't exist, we would have to invent her, simply to remind ourselves that fashion can be fun. She's the original wild child and set to paint the town pink!"
"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.
