Betsey Johnson is one designer we'd love to be best friends with.
From her eccentric style (pink! petticoats! sparkle!) to her vivacious and loving personality, the fashion designer has made a name for herself in the industry while simultaneously carving a place in the hearts of fashion girls everywhere.
When we had a chance to sit down with her at Lucky Magazine's FABB conference in Los Angeles, where she was gleefully dishing on her new show XOX, Betsey Johnson on The Style Network, we couldn't wait to learn more about her.
Here's what happened:
Betsey, you have so much charisma and energy! Where does it come from? It's a panic energy, mostly! It's an anxious, nervous panic that I have felt since I was little. I didn't know that I had it. A few months ago, in the middle of taping the show, my daughter Lulu said to me, 'Mom, you're so ADD.' I'm like, you guys and your initials! I grew up with no initials. Not even PMS. I can justify my scatteredness because they have an initial for it now.
