have you heard the news? betsey johnson will not be throwing in the towel despite her llc having filed for chapter 11 three months ago. instead, she’ll reveal a line of “solid and printed sexy, flowing dresses” at retrospective runway show next month. a collaboration between the designer and the levy group’s design director, suzi chin, the dresses will be priced between $99 and $249 and sold in boutiques and department stores.
good for her, man. that betsey is one tough cookie and i’ve been a fan of hers—well, not her poofy, cupcake-looking contraptions—for years. to close up shop after having business associates she trusted make a few bad decisions beyond her control would be a damn shame, especially considering her history and breadth of talent.
