Betsey Johnson celebrates 30 years in fashion

In true Betsey Johnson style, the designer toasted her 30th anniversary with a pink overload Thursday night at her SoHo store. Surrounded by friends and balloons, Betsey Johnson and her business partner Chantal Bacon blew out candles while enjoying a raucous rendition of "Happy Birthday." "We never thought of this!" the duo exclaimed in unison. "You work your ass off and you don't add it up!"

They weren't the only ones celebrating--Bee Shaffer stopped by before heading to her birthday dinner at Morandi. Meanwhile, guests nibbled on mini frozen treats--a welcome relief from the persistent heat--along with cotton candy and strawberry shortcake. Naturally, all were pink.
Thirty years in business is a serious milestone--but then again, so is a 30th birthday. So how did Johnson and Bacon celebrate theirs? "I can't talk about it!" cried Johnson. "I had a bad girl phase." Luckily, Bacon dished, recalling her party at the Mud Club, the same haunt where the pair launched the Betsey Johnson brand. "Betsey gave me a huge party there, and I blew out candles on a huge number 30 made of Twinkies!"

Looking forward to the upcoming Fashion Week, Johnson dished a little bit on her runway show. "Two grandchildren, another cartwheel and Betsey Betsey land!" she explained. "It's another little fantasy trip. We're resurrecting the vintage! It must be the eighties again--well, it feels like the eighties again."
