Betsey Johnson is ready for a new chapter.
On Thursday, it was revealed that Betsey Johnson LLC has filed Chapter 11 and, as a result, the bulk of the designer’s boutiques will close and about 350 staffers are expected to lose their jobs.
Betsey Johnson LLC is the licensee that operates the designer’s 63 freestanding stores, women’s apparel and e-commerce. It is run by Castanea Partners, the Boston-based private equity firm that bought a controlling interest in the company in 2007.
Johnson said, “I feel so sad for my store people and all my pink girls. They live and die for me. But I need to be better. I really need to work well and be more efficient.” Subscription Required For More
