This article talks about the moment in Betsey Johnson’s childhood when she first realized fashion mattered. It was interesting to see that like most of the people in our class, Betsey had a specific event in her life that inspired her to take an interest in fashion. As a child Betsey loved taking different dance classes and her performance costumes are what inspired her to start designing. Betsey stated that “What I tried to do was a combination of dance and art,”. I think it’s great to see that Betsey still designs in the same way as when she first began. Most of her designs today still have a costume like feel and are filled with art. This article was an important reminder that even the biggest designers in the world had a humble beginning. Betsey was able to take her dance costume sketches and turn them into a fashion empire.
