Bye Bye Betsey


Betsey Johnson has announced that she will be retiring after her September show. Eric Sartori, who designed for Vera Wang has been named as her successor. She claims that Sartori “… is better than I am. He just needs to Betsey-fy himself.”

Johnson vows to remain in the fashion world as a “mega-consultant” who is still involved in her line, tweaking and modifying as she sees fit, kind of “like Ralph [Lauren]”.

Have the cartwheels really come to an end?  There have been mumblings that Johnson’s statements to NY Mag  have been exaggerated and that her idea of retirement means just coming to the office less. We’ll see.
