Betsey Johnson is one designer that knows how to style and entertain at the same time. Her fashion shows are always one big party. Hollyscoop caught up with the designer before her Spring 2009 fashion show in NYC to get the scoop on her upcoming collection.

Johnson has been in the biz for 45 years, but this specific show had a special place in her heart, because her two grand daughters were apart of it.

“This is a mind boggling experience for me because I open the show with my two grand daughters.” She said she was nervous about their involvement since it's the “only part of the show that I can't count on."

So what inspired Johnson's latest collection? "Peter Pan! I think it's classic to me, all of it rolled into one little fairy tale,” confessed the designer.

Johnson’s goal was “just to entertain. But I love the collection too, it's always secondary to me. When I plan the show, the clothes, sure they look great, but it's more the party that you are planning.”

When asked about what trends we can expect from her 2009 Spring collection Betsey said, “I don’t think they are trends anymore I think they are lot of options, I like jumpsuits, short suits but just one piece easy stuff, I don’t know there’s tight there’s puffy, there’s sleek there’s pretty.”

She may be a pro at the game but she still gets nervous before every show. “There is critics for six months. You are flooded by your reviews and exposure.”
