NEW YORK, Jan 21, 2013/ — In a statement released today, Betsey Johnson explained why she is not holding a runway show for the Fall 2013 season this February.

The world of Betsey Johnson continues to thrive. After a very successful Spring/Summer 2013, Betsey will be taking the FW13 season off to focus on her brand expansion, which includes a breadth of new initiatives such as a dress launch, a new fragrance and a reality show.

However, do not worry. Betsey may not be strutting her stuff down the runway in the tents this season, but she will be cartwheeling through Lincoln Center at an event for her new reality series, The Betsey and Lulu Show.
