Finally! yesterday afternoon we met Betsey Johnson thanks to an extended invitation of HAUTE IN TEXAS Aquila Mendes (follow her as she develops her story) and let me tell you that all you see on Social Media, interviews and ads are nothing compare to the energy that the 76 year old designer irradiates in person. Despite the horrible moment she is going through (see video recap to hear it from herself) it seems like nothing stops the this fashion icon who was presenting her latest collection and new fragrance to all her fans and loyal followers at Dillards where impatiently they waited to meet her.
Miss Johnson has been on a tour for months promoting her new scent PRETTY n PUNK which now is sold exclusively on her www.betsyjohnson.com and as she said in her characteristic humorous way, you must try it to see what’s the good Sh&!* in it but you know us, after spraying some (a must have btw) we couldn’t help it but researching the ingredients trapped in this beautifully designed bottle.
As you see in the video, just the waiting time in the beauty section of Dillards was a show on its own, people lined up for hours for the opportunity to sit with Betsey for a minute and bring a souvenir photo with them but not only that, a few lucky attendants won great prices such her newest luggage collection and others accessories raffled while the star of the night arrived to the scene.
I must say that the highlight of the event was this particular supporter who captivated Betsey’s heart, he gave her a portrait of his own creation, if you haven’t watch the video go back because this is the moment when just for a few seconds Miss B.J. was able clear of her mind the bad situation her family was going through.
