BETSEY JOHNSON S/S 2013: BACKSTAGE

BETSEY JOHNSON S-S 2013 BACKTAGE-29

The atmosphere backstage at Betsey Johnson is always more like a party than the hectic pre-show environment of most fashion shows. It’s the one show where models and press actually sip champagne, and munch on mini cupcakes, just like I always imagined fashion shows to be when I was growing up.

Another thing the show had in common with my childhood– crimped hair! Betsey herself served as the inspiration for the wild, chunky crimped look, created by AVEDA lead hair stylist John Reyman.

The Spring 2013 Alice & Olivia presentation wasn’t just a fashion show– it was a party. Guests sipped champagne, were entertained by DJ’s, and indulged in Magnum ice cream bars while scoping out the collection.

What I liked most about the whole affair, was that the presentation was FUN, and within the collection, there was a dress for everyone. Whether you need a ball gown, or a day dress –possibly even a wedding dress– you could find it within Stacey Bendet’s fresh, whimsical designs.

Yea, the lighting was all over the place at this presentation. But everything still looked cute!

I’ve been a longtime fan of Rachel Antonoff‘s designs. In fact, her first presentation was the very first fashion show I ever covered for this blog! So it makes me happy to see that she is finally getting the recognition and publicity she deserves.

One of the things taking her career to the next level: her collaboration with Bass Shoes. Full disclosure: I am ADDICTED to these shoes. Not only are they comfortable, but the designs –especially of her oxfords– are unparalleled in cuteness, and comfort at their price point. I own multiple pairs, and whenever I wear my black & clear oxfords, in particular, I have strangers stopping me on the street to ask about them.

When I stopped by backstage before Rachel’s show, the first thing I noticed wasn’t the hair, makeup, or clothes– it was the new shoes. I am so excited to say that there are more clear shoes on the way!
