    :( Thats sad. I love Betsey Johnson. She was such a breath of fresh air from the rest of the boring crap at NY Fashion week.

    For real? I love her stuff! Most too flamboyant to wear on a daily basis but always so fun and flirty!

    This is definitely sad to me as well, it will be interesting though to see the new direction that the brand will go in. I certainly am hoping for a bit more vampy look for some of the things, that's for sure-while at the same time retaining the very essence that is the Betsey Johnson brand.

    Amen. Hopefully the brand doesn't change too much. I have a peplum hoodie and a gold watch from her and I looooooooove her stuff to death. I guess it's good that she recognizes that maybe the best thing for the brand is for her to retire.

    i'm not surprised really. nothing bad to say as one has to admire how long she has been at it but it's become so tired and redundant her collections. ever since the early 00's every collection has looked pretty much the same to me.
