From the beginning of her career in the 1960s, Betsey Johnson has been known for a youthful, exuberant style – epitomized by her habit of cartwheeling down the runway at the end of her fashion shows.

Coming from a background in dance, Johnson once said, Im basically about a ballerina torso and a full skirt.”
