There are so many types of shows at fashion week. Some are magical, others are fierce and a few are so incredibly fun. Two fit the fun mold in New York: Betsey Johnson and Kate Spade. Betsey celebrated 50 years in fashion with a Benjamin Button inspired show that took us from the present back to the childhood costumes her mother saved. And Kate Spade greeted guests with flower bouquets as they entered a presentation full of playful looks and the most adorable bags (you can watch glimpses of both in my fashion week vlog).
I was inspired by the fun factor when creating this look. All the inspiration came from the bag. I brought out the black and white with a faux leather skirt and striped shirt. Then I added a pop of pink with my lips and Barbie heels. I got to borrow the clutch to watch Betsey’s show and unfortunately it’s not available online right now. So I wanted to round up some other fun bags from the two designers to get you inspired to create a whimsical look of your own.
