Comeback Queen: Betsey Johnson

This fashion industry veteran shows no signs of stopping. Known for her whimsical dresses and glitzy accessories, Betsey Johnson splashed into the New York fashion scene in 1964 before creating her label in 1978. While her namesake company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in April, the eccentric designer stitched together a new collection of dresses with outerwear manufacturer The Levy Group. Johnson will deliver a "retrospective" show during Fashion Week, featuring vintage pieces from the 1960s, '70s, and '80s.
