Betsey Johnson - 40 Years of Lolita Fashion
Betsey Johnson has been making Lolita-friendly, whimsical frocks for over 40 years. Tuesday night at a Manhattan nightclub, there was a runway show/birthday party/concert in her honor.
I have to say it was one of my favorite fashion events that I have ever attended as my childhood pop icon, Cyndi Lauper opened the show performing Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and True Colors. She was dressed on a Gothic/punk Lolita outfit of black tulle skirt, swiss dot bustier and studded leather jacket.
Next, the models danced down the runway in outfits that spanned from Betsey Johnson's 1960's looks all the way through current seasons of 2012. Pink champagne, pink popcorn and pink cupcakes were served to guests who danced the night away until the sun came up!
