Betsey Johnson is to fashion what fun is to life… necessary and wonderful together! This year the spunky, 70-year-old designer brought the gym to the runway (literally) with her latest runway show themed “BJ Kicks A” (I agree! ).
This was the debut of her active wear collection. Models hit the runway and took their places on pink yoga mats and did exercises with Betsey using champagne bottles as weights! (I was wondering why champagne bottles lined the stage along with sneakers and other fab accessories. Very clever!)
In addition to adorable workout pieces, the models rocked sneakers, fabulous handbags and donned looks from her latest dress collection.
Faux fur, tutus, leather, leopard print and floral dresses, colorful plaid (that totes screamed Cher Horowitz from Clueless) and adorable spandex fitnessitems came down the runway.
Check out the gallery below:
Not bad for someone who wasn’t supposed to show this season, right?! I’ve noticed a lack of a “cuteness” factor in my fitness wardrobe, so I’m excited to get my hands on some of these quirky pieces!
What do you think about Betsey Johnson’s debut active wear collection?
