Betsey Johnson's Spring 16 collection took us on a tour of the 60s, 70s and 80s proper, paired with the music of the time and crimped hair. Dedicated to her childhood dance teacher, Ann K. Pimm, a series of six chapters, broken up by a hilarious nursery rhyme narration, Betsey danced her models through Limelight to Kansas City.

This show is always a big, fun fashion party. This season was no different. During the show models dancing on the runway wearing over-the-top styles.
The collection pieces were bold and colorful. The models sported a crazy rainbow eye makeup and big retro hair.

The show ended with the signature Betsey cartwheel-into-the-splits and a big runway dance party with giant balloons. It was absolutely amazing to watch and be a part the audience. 

NYFW Spring 2016 - Day One - Outfit

September 18, 2015

On day one of NYFW I covered the Custo Barcelona, Betsey Johson, Giulietta and Iuri Shuladze shows. This season NYFW moved from Lincoln Center to a new venue at the former US Post Office at 34th Street. Everything was different. I confess I still miss the former Lincoln Center spaces.

For the first day I wore this custom made full skirt and crop top. The floral fabric which was made in Brasil is called "xita". I really love the bright colors of the pattern.
