With her trademark hair, and rocker-chic pink, fashion designer Betsey Johnson came into Washington like a Category 5 hurricane and stopped by “Washington Unplugged” on Wednesday.
Johnson is in town lending her support to the American Association of People with Disabilities and their annual Gala, honoring Stevie Wonder with their first Image Award for his lifetime of work and raising the social perspective on the disabled.
Johnson lent her artistry to the event’s logo and overall design. She also took part in a fashion show where disabled women modeled some of her latest designs.
“I just feel part of the whole family. It’s been a most heartwarming thing to do,” Johnson said.
