Betsey Johnson is one designer who consistently puts fun in fashion, and she never disappoints. Manhattan's Lot 61 was converted into a nightclub for her presentationcomplete with strobe lights, disco balls, blaring music and scantily clad rock chicks, motorcycle vixens and disco bunnies. Looks included plasticized cat suits, hot-pink biker ensembles, micro shorts with zipper sides, Lurex "Ziggy Stardust" minidresses, technicolor lizard-print hipsters and provocative eyelet leather pants. For the finale, Johnson showed mini-tutus in neon colors paired with lace tees, bras and halter tops; her wedding gown consisted of a lace puff top with diamond mini-pouf skirt.
