It looks like New York Fashion Week will get to see yet another of Betsey Johnson‘s famous cartwheels after all.
According to a release, the designer has changed her mind about not showing this season.
Though Johnson publicly announced last week she’d be “taking the FW13 [show] season off to focus on brand expansion,” including a fragrance launch and new reality show, the designer has now decided not to skip New York fashion week. Her show is scheduled for Feb. 11 at 5 p.m at the tents at Lincoln Center.
“I just could not stay away from fashion week,” Johnson said. “I wanted to do this for myself and for all of my fans to show that I’ve still got it and I am not going anywhere.”
Considering Johnon’s recent declaration of bankruptcy, some Betsey fans were no doubt worried the designer was in trouble again when she cancelled her runway show. We’re glad that Betsey is putting those fears to rest.
Plus, New York Fashion Week really just wouldn’t be the same without her.
