When we hear about a party hosted by Betsey Johnson, we put on our crinolines and hop in a cab. Lucky for us, June 23 is National Pink Day, meaning Betsey threw a wondrous pink bash in her Garment District showroom.
The already neon colored space, complete with artwork by Betsey herself, got a pink makeover for the special event. Pink crepe paper was draped overhead and all of Betsey’s best pink designs were hanging around the room. There was pink champagne, pink cupcakes and cookies, and pink roses everywhere.
The environment in Betsey’s showroom was that of pure joy, as her staff and troves of dedicated interns danced and drank while decked out in their chicest pink get-ups (all Betsey, of course). Betsey Johnson herself rocked a pink Madonna tee shirt and her signature smile for the party, toasting her staff and leading us in a rendition of “Happy Pink Day” to the tune of “Happy Birthday.”
Aside from the plethora of pink, there was another wonderful diversion in the showroom: a multitude of clothing racks, each overflowing with ruffles, sparkles, bows, and prints. It was like a fantasy world of cocktail dresses.
The only problem was, we forgot to wear pink. Talk about feeling like a black sheep.
