Fashion Icon: Betsey Johnson

Fashion designer Betsey Johnson developed her edgy, offbeat style during the new wave/punk era of the late 1970s.

In that period she became part of both the  youthquake fashion movement and  Andy Warhol’s  underground scene, along with The Velvet Underground, Edie Sedgwick and Lou Reed. She love fashion, she love life and most of all, she love COLOR.
