Betsey Johnson is celebrating her 67th birthday with some of her favorite people — her customers.
The contemporary designer, whose birthday is today, is bringing her collection of archived fashion shows to a wide audience on her Web site, betseyjohnson.com. Starting today, runway videos dating back to the designer’s first show in 1978 are available to everyone on the site. The show videos will also be posted weekly on Johnson’s social networking pages of Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
