Inside the TORRID Meets Betsey Johnson Collection
There is a personal spin to this collaboration, too! TORRID’s CEO’s, Liz Muñoz has long been a fan of Betsey Johnson, all the way back in the ‘80s! But, back then, plus size options was NOT a thought… until now!
“This TORRID Meets Betsey Johnson Collection was a tremendous honor. I might not be in this business today if it wasn’t for Betsey and all she’s done for fashion – especially women in fashion” said Liz Muñoz, CEO at TORRID
With this collection, we get “ready-to-wear, accessories and intimates that evoke a rocker edge, while being young and playful.”
And this is a great matchup… especially when you think back to the early Torrid days! Punk, rock, grunge, and all the attitude that came along with it. I imagine this collection will be a hit with both the late Gen Xers and the early millennials… maybe?
Listen… the love does NOT just stop with Liz either. Torrid asked their audience who they would love to see a collaboration with, and there was an overwhelming response for Betsey Johnson.
This just makes so much sense!
“I love women of all sizes and shapes. The best thing is- I know I can depend on Torrid for knowing how to make the clothes fit great. To me- that’s the secret.“ Betsey Johnson
The TORRID Meets Betsey Johnson collection channels Betsey Johnson’s signature pink rock fashion flair and gives us a Puff Sleeve Corset Top, Tartan Strapless Dress, Tartan Button Front Blazer, Hook and Eye Peplum Jacket and Silver Metallic Tulle Dress.
And that is JUST what we know…

Kudos to them for making this happen!
