Attending a Betsey Johnson New York Fashion Week show should top your list of things to accomplish in this lifetime. Johnson always puts on an elaborate performance and this season she celebrated proms from the 1950’s to present day.

Johnson’s show rocked with inventive music that included a delicious techno version of Mr. Sandman. The tents were decked out in hot pink and black; intimate tables filled with celebrities lined the runway. A disco ball lit up the space as “tulled” models flirted their way down the runway. These sassy girls smiled and blew kisses, reflecting the fun energy of the clothing.

Polka dots, prints, and texturized fabrics made strong statements. This show was as much about the clothing as it was about the experience. Everything just flowed together to create an irresistible afternoon of radiant fashion.

And, of course, the playful vixen cartwheeled her way into our hearts after she tore off her own dress. She revealed a Prom Queen tee-shirt, and the audience went absolutely wild. Betsey Johnson has done it again, and we can’t help but wonder how she will wow us next season.
