Last week in New York City, Betsey Johnson unveiled her latest fragrance, Too Too at MILK Studios. The event featured DJ sets by Becka Diamond and Chelsea Leyland. The Russian American Foundation presented a few dancers from the Bolshoi Ballet Academy. They entertained guests along with a special dance performance from the Stephen Petronio Company. Betsey Johnson even fell into a split with some of the dancers!
Too Too is a sexy, cool perfume with notes of the fruity and floral kind. The perfume is chock full of passion fruit, mandarins, ginger, strawberry, jasmine, Bulgarian rose, patchouli, sandalwood, and vanilla. Too Too is going to be sold exclusively at Sephora stores in October. I can’t wait to smell this perfume. It seems like it will smell so good. Thoughts? Photo from Factory PR.

I just found out, on the Wall Street Journal, that Monique Lhuilier and Naeem Khan have opted out of presenting runway shows for New York Fashion Week. The recession has everybody on a choke hold right now. Within the past few weeks, it has been reported that Vera Wang, Betsey Johnson, Temperley London, Carmen Marc Valvo and other designers are holding presentations in their stores , smaller venues, or are totally trying to figure out a way to revamp their presentations into something more economic for their companies. According to Fashionista.com, Men’s Vogue is folding, kind of folding, or revamping/downsizing. Last but not least is the news that Chanel, the epitome of luxury and chicness, laid off 200 workers. By the time I get my masters there won’t be any fashion jobs left.
