As the summer season approaches, its time for Betsey Johnson to present the world with yet another of her over-the-top and flirtatious collections. Johnson emerged onto the New York City fashion scene in the 1960s. After being the in-house designer at Manhattan boutique Paraphernalia, she opened her own boutique on the Upper East Side and developed her trademark for having cartwheeling antics during her fashion show finales. Now with a career spanning more than three decades, boutiques all over the world, and various awards under her belt, Betsey Johnson is not only a designer but an American icon.
