Betsey Johnson has always played by her own set of rules…and won. Since the 1960’s, she’s rocked the fashion world with her cutting edge style and over-the-top personality.
This year, she brought that same energy to Fashion Week with a new collection. Inspired by girls working out, wigs were added to the look to bring life and energy to the stage.
Head hairstylist Robert Cutler describes the look as fantasy with theatrics.
It’s all about having fun. You always have the girl at the gym with the ponytail, right?…The wigs are cheap, cheap synthetic. They look choppy. I don’t want them to look perfect…what we’re doing is putting on the wigs and cutting off the bits we don’t like. I like the chunkiness of these cheap wigs because they actually look like wigs…It’s funny because normally we spend time trying to perfect it and make it look real. But it’s Betsey Johnson so it’s sort of fun.”
